Goodreads asked Karen Kirst:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Karen Kirst I panic a bit and try to push through it, which usually doesn't work and only makes me more frustrated. Taking a break and getting my mind off the problem helps...watching TV, listening to music or reading books to my kids. I also try to think through the current scene and imagine changes before sitting down at the computer to write again.
