Goodreads asked Cherry Shephard:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Cherry Shephard Make your characters do something. If you find that your characters have been written into a corner, throw a plot twist at them. It could be something really basic such as one of them leaving the room, or as elaborate as running away from a foe.
By forcing your characters to do something, your work can begin to flow once more. Remember: You will always edit later - for now you need to write freely.
