Goodreads asked Alan Hamilton:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Alan Hamilton I go and do something else. Read, listen to music, play with another idea for an article, blog, review, book etc. and come back to the one I'm blocked on when I'm ready. Writing's a marathon, not a sprint. In my case, I'm particularly lucky because I have a lot of copy editing work to do for a major publisher and that gives me any break from writing I might need.
