Goodreads asked Alicia Dean:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Alicia Dean I write anyway. Even if I'm blocked, I still at least put down some kind of scene notes, such as, 'Someone dies here' or 'She's angry and takes action' etc. If that is all I can come up with for a scene, I write only that, then move on to the next one. I know, when I come back to that scene, I'll either no longer be blocked, or I'll realize I was blocked because it didn't belong in the book, or because I was approaching it from the wrong angle, the wrong POV, or something along those lines.
