Goodreads asked Susan Hanniford Crowley:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Susan Hanniford Crowley Write something else. Doodle. Research some information you need for the book but keep writing it down, and you'll return to the story. Recently I couldn't see in my dreams the beginning, so I started one chapter in and wrote half the book until I saw the beginning chapter. Keep writing something. Write poetry from a character's point of view. All this keeps you moving forward.
