Goodreads asked Marilyn Cavicchia:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Marilyn Cavicchia I use different methods at different times. If the thing that I'm stuck on doesn't absolutely have to be written right away, I might take it as sign to focus on a different aspect of my process, like editing and submitting to publications and contests. If the thing has to be done soon, then it helps to at least take a short break and think about something else -- or nothing -- for a while. I think it's true that a lot of great ideas come to us in the shower.
