Goodreads asked Tom Chmielewski:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Tom Chmielewski It used to be harder, but now I turn back to my practices as a journalist. I just start writing. I become stalled when I try to write a perfect sentence. Instead, if I don't come up with something good, I just start writing until I stumble across the sentence I like, and the rest starts to follow. I throw everything else away that I wrote before that sentence.
