Goodreads asked Aida Jacobs:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Aida Jacobs I deal with writer's block in various different ways depending on how bad it is.

Sometimes, all it takes is something as simple as me getting up from my desk and walking into the kitchen to get something to drink to get the wheels turning again.

For the more stubborn blocks, I walk away from my work for a few days (or sometimes, a couple weeks if it's a particularly bad block) and turn to either playing video games or writing fanfiction for various fandoms because it takes me away from the taunting of the incomplete page in front of me while still giving my brain a chance to passively work on breaking through the block.
