If I am blocked, it usually means I know that something isn't really working and needs to be fixed. I need to let myself figure out how to fix it, and staring at a blank page is usually not the answer for that. When I figure out the answer (while folding laundry or doing dishes), I return to the writing and fix it. In the mean time, I will often work on another piece of writing.(less)
