Goodreads asked Gina Marie Barlean:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Gina Marie Barlean I just keep reading and paying attention to the world. Listen to music, look at artwork, read poetry. Immerse yourself in creativity. Even gardening and baking are creative endeavors.

Find writing prompts and force yourself, like a school assignment, to write something. It may be rough and awful, but you'll have something to work with. I also find writing a blog post weekly to keep my writing mind sharp.
