Goodreads asked Laraine Anne Barker:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Laraine Anne Barker The best way to deal with it, I find, is to just put words on the page. It doesn't matter if what you write is garbage; it's not as though once it's written it can't be changed. This advice from American Poet William Stafford might help you: There is no such thing as writer's block for writers whose standards are low enough.
