How do you beat out your writers block?

This is a question that is on my mind today, as I am suffering from serious writer's block. Nanowrimo is still in progress and not going well today; Today i feel like jumping down the rabbit hole into wonderland and never coming back up to the real world.
Today is one of those days when real life gets in the way of your story world, right now it is nearing 9 o'clock at night and with zero words typed up I am avoiding writing by writing this instead. But to the question at hand. Normally I get my characters to yell at me or tell their deepest feelings about their story until I have enough inspiration to write. But not today; Today Jacob is giving me the silent treatment... and I have no idea why, but let's stop talking about character's and their strange ways.
I've tried doing writing prompts, doesn't work for me... I've tried random questioning myself for ideas, i've probally tried every possible thing to get rid of the stupid toil that is writer's block but somehow the devil will always find it's victims. The only thing that seems to help me, is to just write through it. No matter how rubbish your current ideas are, they're better than getting nothing down at all. Think about, you can edit a bad piece of writing, but if you don't try you can't change a blank page into the greatest story ever told.
