Some advice for people struggling with the 'bad mood' one, a good way I found to fix that is by 'channeling' the mood into a story. Say your angry, start writing a characterization moment where a character (who this would apply to) goes berserk. It vents your emotions, it shows a key trait in your character, and it actually contributes to the plot.

I have a love of this man that borders on the unhealthy.

john Vorhaus once said "Writers' Block happens when there is too much fear and not enough information." and I totally subscribe to that. The more Information you have on a scene, the less scary it will be. Approaching the same scene from a different angle will often yield better results, too!

I will listen to this every time I need a pep talk.
