New Stories and Writer's Block

I haven't given up on my Regency-set threesome, but I do have a rather large case of writer's block. There. I said it. Admitted it aloud. I've been tweaking, editing, adding scenes, revamping the plot, and whatever else I can think of to it for weeks, but let's face facts. I'm stuck.

Not writing myself into a corner and have to rip out sections stuck, but the scene I have doesn't work. I need it, or something very much like it. The half dozen or so ways I've played with it aren't IT. Bridging the first half to the second is always difficult, or I think so at least!

What do you do when you can't push forward? I've tried everything, seriously. Have looked at this from a dozen different angles and yet nothing works.

So, I'll be working on a couple ideas I have for short stories. 5,000 words is a hell of a lot easier than 50,000! Ravenous Romance put out 3 calls for anthologies, and I intend to use them to spread my wings, so to speak. Do something new, not that with one story to my resume I have such a  long back list. But I'm still going to use these opportunities to see what I can do, whether or not they accept my submissions.
