Goodreads asked C.S. Gavitt:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

C.S. Gavitt Work through it. Once you start, it is easier. Yes, the 'block' may appear, but then just write something else. Start another story. It does not have to make sense now. It will later, but just keep the process going. It may fit in the story, it may not, just keeping the momentum going is the goal.

I always have more 'block' when I don't have a project. It is the starting that holds things up, not while the wheels are in motion.
