Goodreads asked Samuel Michael Lemon:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Samuel Michael Lemon That's a great question. When it happens, I go back and re-read previous chapters I've written. Because writing is sometimes like polishing furniture. The more you polish your work, the better it is. At other times, I'll write a book or an article that someone else has written. It's important for writers not only to write -- but to read as well.
