Goodreads asked Amanda J. Clay:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Amanda J. Clay That's a tricky one! Any writer knows that sometimes the words just won't come no matter how much you beg. I usually just force myself to write SOMETHING. Anything! Even if it stinks I force myself to get words on the page. Then I'll revisit it when I get a spark of inspiration. If I'm really stumped and have seemingly forgotten how to write entirely? I'll search for the muse in other outlets--a great song, exercise, nature, cooking, books, Breaking Bad--anything that gets my brain working!
