Goodreads asked Connie Archer:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Connie Archer No time for writer's block! There are deadlines looming! Seriously! I may sit in front of the monitor and scream and pull my hair, but there's no time for delay. When people talk about writer's block, I'm sure it's just an element of fear, that editor in our head that tells us we can't do this. What I do? I just keep writing, even if I'm sure it's absolute drivel. Sometimes it is, and has to be deleted, but sometimes, I manage to get out of my own way, and something good gets on the page. I'll read it later and I won't cringe.
