Goodreads asked Benjamin J. Denen:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Benjamin J. Denen I stop writing. That may seem like a cliche answer, but sometimes the best solution is to simply walk away. I usually try to do some reading in a similar genre that I am writing in. If for whatever reason I can't seem to get it going again, I file the story away and return to it when inspiration strikes.
