Goodreads asked Aaron Dietz:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Aaron Dietz I have fun. I don't remember the last time I had writer's block, but ultimately I just write and if I stop having fun writing I change something and keep changing things until it's fun again. Sometimes this means changing the venue I'm writing in (go to a coffee shop where I can get a cayenne mocha, for example), or sometimes it's change the format of what I'm producing (transform a part of the story into a comment card filled out by one of the characters, for example).

Whatever the case, I am fortunately not too challenged by writer's block, and perhaps this is because I constantly focus instead on having fun as opposed to producing words.
