Writer's block

I always thought of myself as having writing skills, so why can't I get properly started on a paper? I think I feel like I'm not fully prepared to write a good paper, but I also realize I have to get my ideas on paper to develop them more fully. My writing skills should include revision skills. It may look like I'm lazy, but I'm actually interested in this paper for which I have already made an outline. I have to take my creative powers to the next level somehow.

in creative writing class they always told us to re-type the first lines/paragraph of a famous work of fiction. So maybe you should pick a Posner or Learned Hand opinion and retype some of that to get inspired.

That's a great idea. Now who is a famous authority on land use I could find writings from?...
