Goodreads asked Anthea T. Piscarik:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Anthea T. Piscarik Writer's block is partly procrastination, on my part. Sometimes I overburden myself by trying to imagine all the story threads at once and then think, "Hmm, I'll worry about this later." What happens? I also put off sitting my butt down and writing! So, what to do? Embrace the blank page or paragraph half-written. I emphasize the word EMBRACE. You'll surprise yourself. If time and your life permits, write EVERY DAY, even if it's a private word to yourself in a journal. In that way you won't escape the pen or the keyboard!
