Goodreads asked Bonita Gutierrez:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Bonita Gutierrez Wine. Lots and lots of wine...Just kidding...sort of...

Here's a typical conversation in my house:
Me: "You never told me writing was so hard."
Hubby: "Writing is hard."
Me (whines with glass of wine in my hand): "But it's really hard!"
Hubby pats me on my head and walks away. I stare blankly at the computer screen.
And scene.

But mostly, I'll step away from my computer. I'll go for a run. I'll go kick someone in my mixed martial arts class (That usually helps a lot.)
Or, I'll read some really awesome book to get inspired. And then, I get back to it.
