Goodreads asked Virginia R Bensen:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Virginia R Bensen If you have writer's block, it is usually because you have spent too much time over-writing, over-creating. Step away from your project and do something you enjoy, or have some fun with house work or yard work, or go to the gym and work out. Sometimes distracting yourself from writing does the trick and you will find ideas flowing quickly.

You must be careful though, and not step away for too long of a time. You tend to forget details about characters, or plot. Trying to reconstruct some of that takes longer than originating those ideas.
