Goodreads asked Julia McDermott:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Julia McDermott I reread the scene(s) I've just written, and then work on the next dialogue scene even if it isn't going to be the next scene in the story. Then I'm able to get inside my characters' heads. If that doesn't work, I work on something else – I just try to stay productive.
