Goodreads asked H.W. Cumming:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

H.W. Cumming For me its about not forcing it - I always try to start with a complete outline of the main plot points in 20-30 lines or less as a guide and then work my way around it. Sometimes I get stuck because i dont like the way something is coming together so i take a break or expand on a plot point ahead in the book by a few chapters and that always helps me clear things up.
