Goodreads asked Nate Jones:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Nate Jones Start writing. It may seem like a trite answer, but for me starting IS my writer's block. Once I get going the story tends to come to me.

Although on those rare occasions where I can't seem to get going no matter how hard I try, I usually find it's best to either skip to a different part of the story to work on, read my previous work to try to get in the flow, step away and think of the story as I do other things, or just drop it entirely until I'm ready to get going again.
