Goodreads asked Dominic Smith:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Dominic Smith There are certainly days when it feels like nothing is flowing, where the conceit or the writing itself seems lacking. But I have learned to accept this as part of the normal writing practice. I strongly believe that inspiration comes out of the work. We shouldn’t wait for inspiration to strike as a condition for writing. We develop the practice, do the work, and inspiration comes. Writing is muscular and requires a regimen.
