Goodreads asked Sarah Mäkelä:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Sarah Mäkelä Most of the time I just write through writer's block. Taking the nose to the grindstone approach and just getting words down on the page, even if they aren't pretty usually gets the job done. Sometimes I have to go back to the drawing board to see if the reason I'm struggling with the book because it slid off track plot-wise. If that's the case, I'll brainstorm how to fix what's wrong then get back to writing.
