Goodreads asked Philip Temple:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Philip Temple Well, I very rarely have encountered this in over 50 years of having books published but, from the odd occasion when I have, I learned it's best to just leave it, sleep on it, look at it again the next day and if it is still no good, try something quite new.
