Goodreads asked B.L. Newport:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

B.L. Newport I drink lots of coffee, smoke cigarettes, read and visit with friends until I feel the creative spark light back up. I tend to think of writer's block as the signal from the universe that I may need to give myself a break and maybe go a different direction than where I thought I wanted to go with a story.
