Goodreads asked Karen Kalbacher:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Karen Kalbacher Put anything on the page. Write your name, your phone number anything that takes away the stark intimidating whiteness of the page. Just start writing anything even if it's crap. Think of it as running the tap for a minute before you fill your glass of water. Clear the junk out and the good stuff is coming right behind it.
