Goodreads asked T.L. Haddix:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

T.L. Haddix Several ways - get up and walk away from the computer, change from writing on the laptop to writing with pen and paper, go outside and play with the neighbors dog. And if that doesn't work, I'll consider whether I'm coming at the scene/story from the wrong angle. Maybe the muse is blocked because I have the wrong character telling the story, etc. Sometimes, though, I just have to wait it out.
