Goodreads asked Claire M. Banschbach:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Claire M. Banschbach I stop writing. I never try and force myself to write. When I get stumped, I leave the story for a few hours, days, sometimes even weeks. Some people recommend powering through writer's block. That doesn't really work for me. I take a step back and when I'm ready, I'll start to brainstorm again and when I have something good, I'll sit back down and start writing again.
