Goodreads asked S.A. Youngman:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

S.A. Youngman I don't. If I'm not properly inspired - or I'm too easily distracted from what I'm working on - I simply walk away from it until the inspiration returns. Sometimes it remains dormant for days, months, even decades (which is why STRANGELOVE took almost 20 years to publish), but in my experience it always does come back...usually like a bull in a china shop.
