Goodreads asked Hilary Shew:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Hilary Shew I have not dealt with writer's block. I tried to organize my notes, materials, and photographs in a linear fashion. By using dry erase boards and work tables, I "assembled" the plot line of the book along my office wall. The organization of materials allowed my to writing flow, uninterrupted. In addition, I immersed myself in my book's subject matter, including playing Polish and Russian language tapes.
