Goodreads asked Maria Olia:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Maria Olia There are so many ways ! Sometimes it's enough to just to force myself to start typing. Even retyping a paragraph can jump start my thoughts. I'm a big list writer in general, so breaking up my writing in small sections that I can check off as I complete them helps too. If I'm really on deadline I will put myself on a timer and see how many words I can write in an hour. On those days, I'm grateful to my high school English teacher Mrs. Harker who taught me how to write a timed essay !
