Goodreads asked Eric Plume:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Eric Plume In a word, deadlines.

"I'm just not feeling it" rapidly disappears when you absolutely must have something finished and coherent by a certain date. I was raised in a family that ran a small business, so deadlines are something I understand pretty well.

So I make sure to create situations where I must have what I'm working on done and ready by the date I've said I will or I'll suffer consequences I don't want to deal with. It isn't the most pleasant way to do business, but I guess I bring it on myself by being a procrastinator.
