Goodreads asked Robert Appleton:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Robert Appleton I read a chapter or two by an author whose work always inspires me. It can be anyone from Patrick O'Brian to Stephen King, just as long as there's a strong narrative voice that gets my own creative juices flowing. Never fails. Writer's block is usually just a case of greasing the wheels. It's never as dire as some people make out.
