I have 3 ways to deal with writer's block.

If it's a small, plotting problem, I engage in some mind-numbing activity like ironing, or a treadmill work-out and usually the solution presents itself while my mind is free to wander.

If it's a bigger issue, I find that it helps to take a break from writing for a few days, and spending that time reading instead. Reading time is never time wasted for a writer.

But if whatever I am working on is simply not working at all, then the best advice I have is to try writing something completely different. This is why I like to have two, very different, writing projects on-the-go concurrently. In my case, it is most likely to be a play and a novel, but it might also be a short story or a screenplay. If one just isn't working for me, I'll change tack and write the other. I find that the very different approach required for plays and prose mean that the problems I'm experiencing with one don't usually leak into the other.(less)

In my home country of Ireland, a number of valleys were flooded to provide drinking water and electricity to urban areas in the mid 1900s. Having read accounts of the locals who had been forcibly uprooted from their homes and livelihoods in those valleys, I knew I wanted to set a novel in a similar landscape.

My characters were already living in my head - four adult siblings left to manage a family business after the death of their parents, and the setting and the story came together for me very easily.(less)

End of an Era in Dublin

For those of us who grew up in 1980s suburban Dublin, “Local landmark nostalgia” isn’t something experienced too often. Aside from the odd ancient shooting lodge, most suburban buildings aren’t much older than our parents and are far less dilapidated. Anything that does need tearing down was no great shakes in the first place and is unlikely to be missed.
