Goodreads asked Joe Jackson:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Joe Jackson Usually by reading prior works so I can get back on track with where the series as a whole is supposed to go. If that fails, I sometimes go ahead in the timeline and start outlining future books in the series to get a better idea of where I'm going with it. And if both of those fail, I pick up someone else's book and try clearing my mind by letting someone else do some work.
