Goodreads asked Jamie Sheffield:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Jamie Sheffield I have a general 'roadmap; or what I want to write before I start, and just WRITE!

I don't worry about it being good the first time around ... my first drafts are just for me and my beta-readers to establish common ground for later drafts and subsequent fixes.

If I can just keep writing, eventually my brain shifts gears and the good stuff starts to flow.
