Goodreads asked David Guymer:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

David Guymer It varies depending on the nature of the blockage. Stepping away from the keyboard for a moment can often work wonders, some of my best ideas come to me three seconds after I put my computer into sleep mode, or else wait for me to be in the shower or in my car and far from the nearest note pad. Conversely however, I'll often find myself procrastinating over the start of a new scene or chapter and the best (only) solution is to just write. A few lines in and those blocks invariably fall right away
