Goodreads asked J.L. Whitaker:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

J.L. Whitaker Believe it or not, I've not been blocked, but I have lost enthusiasm. I see those as different things. As long as I don't judge what my fingers are creating too harshly, I can usually let the words flow at least for an hour or more. Then I need to take a break, recharge my mental batteries, and let what my subconscious has exposed settle in.
