I like many of these ideas, and I'd like an Emacs adaptation. I may start with this one:

> One very powerful way to break through the writer's block and produce more words is to deliberately separate the process of writing from the process of editing. To make this easier, you can press Alt+T to turn on the "Typewriter" mode. It will disable all the text editing options (backspace, delete, select), you will only be able to write. You can also press Alt+B to blur the text you're typing, this will prevent you from rereading what you wrote.

Less is sometimes more.

I'd also suggest mindfulness for writers block. Can't write? Meditate instead. Afterwards, you'll feel much more focussed.
