Goodreads asked James Brown:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

James Brown When I'm experiencing writer's block I find that the best thing I can do is take a brief respite from the work. I need to take a break and, while it can be hard to do, concentrate on anything I can think of that has nothing to do with what I'm writing, If I'm blocked and I force myself to keep writing, I won't produce what I'm trying to and, most importantly, I won't enjoy what I'm doing. I know I need a break when writing seems like a chore instead of the joy it really is..
