Goodreads asked Clive Anthony:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Clive Anthony 1) Loud rock music. Single malt whisky.

2) Re-read the previous part, edit, add, and there you go...

3) If necessary after 1 and 2, just write a scene, acknowledging to yourself that you may delete it later. I find this works because the more I write, the clearer it becomes what will happen next...

4) Repeat 1.
