Goodreads asked S.M.M. Lindström:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

S.M.M. Lindström I try to figure out why I'm having a hard time writing. Usually it's because I've A) grown tired of the scene and think it's boring, which means I should scrap it and start over with it, or B) that I'm not sure where I'm going with the story, don't know the characters well enough, etc., which I solve by delving deeper into planning out the plot and giving the characters more detailed personalities and backstories.
