Goodreads asked Paul Marriner:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Paul Marriner Fortunately I've never really had a problem putting words on to the page. There are times when I'm writing a scene which is designed to move the story on but which doesn't excite me, and when that happens I force myself to take a step back and re-evaluate what I'm trying to achieve with that scene; how can I change the content to achieve the same purpose but make it exciting to write which hopefully means it will be better quality prose or dialogue.
