Goodreads asked Kathy Nickerson:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Kathy Nickerson The same way a sculptor deals with a chunk of marble. I chip away at it one bit at a time. If I can't write the major scene that comes next in my novel, I'll do a newspaper column or a blog. I might even write an email to my family or compose a tweet. Eventually, the block gives way and reveals the art.
