Goodreads asked Emma Darwin:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Emma Darwin I remind myself that this doesn't have to be perfect - it doesn't even have to be good, yet; I'm only writing words which will be placeholders until I know what the real words should be.

If that doesn't work, then I step back and try to see if there's something built into the project which means I'm inevitably getting stuck. Then when I've worked out what that is, I can change it, or work out how to avoid it.
