Goodreads asked Steve Thomas:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Steve Thomas For me, writer's block comes from either lacking confidence about what I'm writing or feeling like I'm not pushing the story forward.

In the first case, it's time to re-evaluate my plan. I need to make sure I like where I'm going with things.

In the second case, maybe you can solve the problem with a scene break or skipping ahead to a more exciting part with the intention of going back and filling in the connective tissue later.
