Goodreads asked Cordelia Malthere:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Cordelia Malthere Writer's block is not something I suffer from very often. When I do it is when my mind has left a story to make the giant leap to another one altogether, another cosmos and universe aiming to land back into the former one at a later stage. However I have sometimes what I call the 'Many takes' days' where I struggle to find the best pitches/ all enactments of the characters for a scene: The 'let's do it again one more time with feelings' which can hold a story up in the air with hours of conundrum. I usually deal with it in a bubble bath, with a nice glass of something on the side and music I thoroughly enjoy. Then I think of it again and again, bursting every bubble until one becomes the one to behold and retain. On a psychological basic level, the bath or a shower, is a space where you clean your crap, wash it away from you and this is my way to beat my writer's block.
