Goodreads asked T.L. Costa:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

T.L. Costa I once asked the amazing Kristan Higgins this question once when I was stuck, and her advice is now something I pass along to everyone because it worked so well for me. She said to make a list of twenty things that could potentially happen, no matter how crazy or over the top. Each and every time by the time I'm done writing my list that always seems to include pilgrims and aliens, I have something I can use.

When I am really and truly stuck, before I write out the list I try my best to get outside and talk a walk first to clear my head.
