Don't worry, same thing happened to me! My advice is to just try writing anything that comes to your mind (about your achievements, interests, why you think University XYZ is good for you, etc.), and hopefully this will the get the creativity ball rolling.

I'm doing that, but for my main project deliverable (due tomorrow). I'm down to seven things (all fairly short) I want to write before I format and turn it in. x] I did manage around 4k words so far today though. :)

I've been trying to do this thing where I write a section and only get to check gradcafe and other websites when that section is done. Rinse and repeat. Right now though I'm trying to decide between trying to write more or getting some sleep and starting early tomorrow.

I'm still proud that I had my SOP done two full days before the deadline. That's two days' more breathing room than I normally give myself on assignments.
