Goodreads asked Mary Patterson Thornburg:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Mary Patterson Thornburg Usually my "writer's block" affects only one of the several projects I'm working on, so I can move to another project to get going again. On the rare occasion when I can't do any writing or revising on ANY project, I use the opportunity to do something else that needs doing -- like sweeping the floor or washing my hair.
