Goodreads asked Angela V. Cook:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Angela V. Cook Writer's block is the equivalent to stage fright. Sometimes I'll start to doubt myself and my abilities as a writer, and this causes my confidence to plummet. When this happens, I literally can't write--literally (not a blog post, not a brief email--nothing). This has happened to me a couple of times over the years, and when it does, I'll usually take a break from writing and read some really good books. Doing this will usually inspire me and help remind me of why I love to write in the first place.
