I only write when I'm inspired and I don't worry about the downtime. I think writer's block happens when you're forcing yourself to write but aren't really into it (that's why I have so many abandoned stories -- I just stop when I get bored with the story, as I imagine a reader would). There are times when I get stuck -- when I'm still interested in the story I'm writing but can't think of the next scene -- and I just let it fester in my head without forcing myself to write. Eventually the next scene comes to me and the ball starts rolling again. But I wouldn't consider that blocked: I'm constantly thinking about my stories even if I'm not actively writing them.(less)
