Goodreads asked Cheryl Dodd Baldwin:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Cheryl Dodd Baldwin We back off. That's when it is time to go do something else, or do something fun. Writer's block , to us, just means something is still formulating. We may not have the idea fully developed, or the right way to write what we are wanting to say - there is some kind of clarity that has not emerged because it is all being formulated. Instead of pushing against it - we back off. We focus somewhere else- and then all of a sudden, we will have a breakthrough.
