Goodreads asked Robert Dahlen:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Robert Dahlen Different things work for different people, but for me:

I will just plow ahead as best as I can, get it down and edit it later.

Sometimes I'll just set it aside and work on a different book.

And in a couple of cases, I jump ahead to the next scene and return the one that's blocking me later.

Again, none of these may work for you, though I hope they do if you try them!
