Drought

I'm at that middle part of the story that is in danger of dragging and I'm struggling. I feel like I need...something...here. This is the time in the story where I sometimes abandon the piece and write something different. And maybe taking a break isn't a bad thing but with this story I joined the Mayke it Happen challenge. I have to finish this by May 30th.
Usually not a hard thing to do but, and probably because I have a deadline, I'm stumped.
So how do you push past the drought?

I try to look at it from a different angle, or sometimes I even have to go to a different place to write. Or I jump ahead and just starting jotting bits and pieces of scenes that come to me. Or I start at the beginning and polish all the way up to the stumping point, and that usually jars something loose!
