Writer's block is an enigma to all writers, and how to deal with it is uniquely created by each writer. Personally, if confronted with writer's block, I turn to another activity, i.e. a walk outside, reading, a household chore, quilting or knitting. Usually a change of activity releases me from whatever I'm writing and opens my mind to a freedom not present when I was writing. With a clear mind, I can usually return to writing and pick up where I left off.
