Goodreads asked H.L. Stephens:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

H.L. Stephens I try not to force this issue. I think the worst mistake a writer can make is to manufacture what will not come naturally. If the words seem distant, I do things that keep me close to the story like research on topics that are germane to what I am doing. I take a walk, play with my dog, read another book that is in the same genre, but I don't force it. Eventually the bumps loosen and the words begin to flow again.
