Goodreads asked Karen Troxel:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Karen Troxel I don't think of it as writer's block, more that I'm taking my characters or story in the wrong direction. But working through this process can take time so that's what I give it. Just a little, don't want it to become a crutch, and while I'm stepping away physically from the story, I let my mind play with 'what if?' with the problem.
