Sometimes this helps for writer's block
Sometimes when I'm suffering from particularly bad writer's block, I end up just writing up random scenes from different points in the story. Then later I join the scenes together into a coherent narrative. Writing in fragments really helps, because it's like putting together a puzzle. And sometimes it's easier to focus on writing the Big Event (TM) and then fill in the blanks later. Narratives don't have to be smooth when you're outlining or it's your first draft.
