Goodreads asked Laurie Halse Anderson:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Laurie Halse Anderson Writer's block is a sign that I need some exercise or I'm rushing the writing process, trying to write final draft quality when I'm early in the process. Getting some exercise is the easy part. Being patient with my need to write deeply terrible early drafts is a lot harder.
