Goodreads asked Joey Rawlings:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Joey Rawlings I've only ever encountered writer's block once, and it lasted close to three weeks. It wasn't the fact that i couldn't think about what to write, but instead, I had written my characters into a situation that I didn't know how to solve, but the situation was that good, that i did not want to delete, remove or change it.

I thought long and hard about the problem and stared at my computer screen for close to a week before I shut my laptop and forgot about the problem all together. About two weeks later, I woke up one morning and had the answer... and it was so simple that I felt like an idiot for not being able to come up with it weeks earlier.
