Goodreads asked Tom Atkinson:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Tom Atkinson Take a minute. Do something that relaxes you, or just take a break for an hour. Then come back to your work and plough on. If the block is still there, sometimes you have to concede defeat. You need to be 100% into what you are doing to reach the standards you want. You need to feel like it in your mind and in your heart and when it all feels right, the words will fall out of you like a waterfall.
