Goodreads asked John Van Roekel:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

John Van Roekel I stop writing. As I do this work for my own satisfaction, I am not under pressure so I take a hiatus when I need to.

Your next question might be: But what if you never go back to that book?

I know I will go back. I stopped work on both my previous books for extended periods and always went back. And when I did, I had fresh eyes and my work was better.
