How to deal with a creative block

So there you are, tip tapping away on your computer. You've done the intro, and it's pretty brilliant.

Then you come to the main bit of your cover letter, the bit where you really sell yourself. And you suddenly find yourself with a massive creative block. You can't think of anything to say. What do you do?!

First, don't panic! You will be able to think of something.
