Goodreads asked Roger Moorhouse:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Roger Moorhouse Its an occupational hazard. I think its largely a confidence issue and you just have to get through it, restore your confidence, rediscover your author's voice, read more, get writing again... Its horrid - I've been there - but it's not the end of the world.
And, interestingly, stuff that I have written while "blocked" was, on later reflection, really not that bad... So, it really is all in your head.
