Goodreads asked Josh Lanyon:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Josh Lanyon I'm not sure I believe in "writer's block," but I do believe in getting stuck because you've written yourself into a ditch -- or maybe a bottomless lake. I think when that happens the only real option is to go back and rip everything out to the point right before you felt stuck. And if you can't tell where that point is, your best bet is to shelve the work until you can look at it objectively.
