You can jump across the celonoid on the starter. If the engine turns over then your problem is either the celonoid or the starter switch.

I had the same issue this morning...ran yesterday just fine, but this a.m. when I went to start...nothing. No dash lights, no click, nothing except some odd ticking from the dash(?) ~ weird. Anyway, replaced the battery...starts like the champ!
Changing the battery is a bit of a challenge, but I found a GREAT step-by-step on http://www.corvettemagazine.com/2001/october/battery/bat1.asp

It could be bad plugs, plug wires, a bad ground will do this as well. Check to see if it has the three main things.
Anther common problem is the crank shaft speed sensor. It will cause it to not spark and not start.

Lots of possible choices... but junk yard coil as a replacement (easy for you to do) can eliminate that potential problem for just a few dollars.
If that fails, have a friend help you confirm that you have spark - by pulling a plug wire and holding it against (near) a good ground. If it sparks over 1/2 inch - it is not spark.
If that fails, pull a plug wire off a spark plug. Crank the engine for 10-15 seconds. Now remove and inspect the plug for gas wetness. If wet, it is not fuel flow.
If that fails, it could be timing, timing belt, or a large number of other issues - most cheap to fix but time consuming to locate.
Do the above tests then come back and let us know what you find!!
