Goodreads asked Robert P. Wells:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Robert P. Wells Keep your hand in -- write or edit every day, even if it's rubbish you know you won't keep. Sometimes it helps to take a break from what you're currently working on and write something else (not the same as procrastination). Sleep on problems overnight: let your imagination work things out and let your "think tank" fill up. Remember, like filming movies, you don't have to write in sequence. Write what's tugging at your sleeve and begging to come to life NOW. You can always go back and fill in the rest later. Relax - no block lasts forever.
