Goodreads asked Matthew Chase Stroud:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Matthew Chase Stroud I tend to go for a long run or bike ride and pour it all our physically, then I'm usually able to get through the first few sentences. From there, after I've started I can usually pour out just as much mentally. If I'm having consecutive days or even weeks where I can't put pen to paper, then I usually reevaluate what I'm working on and go from there. I've scrapped entire projects out of lack of interest. If I've lost interest, then I can assume my reader will too.
