Goodreads asked Amy J. Hawthorn:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Amy J. Hawthorn I do 1 of 2 things, depending on where I'm at. If I'm in the middle of a scene and it stalls, I'll backtrack or delete a little and start again. If I'm starting a new scene I'll open a blank document and simply start typing. Sometimes it takes a couple of starts but it usually shakes something loose. For me a new doc seems to relieve some of the pressure that a work in progress holds.
