Goodreads asked Mary Ann Henry:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Mary Ann Henry I've never had writer's block as much as I've had publishing block but I've managed to blast through it finally with Ladies in Low Places and am working on a novel based on the last story in the collection. But I do tend to have periods when I'm not writing. I usually think of this as either I'm not prioritizing and letting my non-writing projects get the best of me...OR I think of it as a necessary incubation period and so I start paying attention to what comes up in dreams or in random thoughts. Sometimes my writer's brain is working on something before it lets me completely in on it. And I love this.
