Goodreads asked Jeff Shear:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Jeff Shear Let me shock you. I don't believe in writer's block, although I have my moments, mostly from boredom during rewrites. If a writer knows where he or she is going, there's nothing to stand in the way of progress. There's no blockage. When a writer gets stuck it's usually because he or she doesn't know what they want to say. Does that mean I'm immune to the problem? Dunno. But if I get writer's block, you'll be the first to be informed! :-) Thanks for asking. (Now I'm worried.) :-)
