Goodreads asked Olivia Hutchinson:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Olivia Hutchinson Usually, if I have writer's block is concerning one particular project. If that's the case, I move onto a different project for a while. That's how the Oceanids came to be. If I have one of those days where I just can't come up with anything, I stop. I go do something else. Get out of the house or do something that's not writing. Sometimes I'll read three or four books in a sitting. It doesn't usually take long before my mind starts cranking stuff out again.
