Goodreads asked Gary Jonas:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Gary Jonas I don't believe in writer's block, because a writer can always write something. When I get stuck, that usually tells me I made a wrong turn somewhere. That doesn't happen often because I use a loose outline so I know where I'm going. When it does, I go back to where the book felt like it was last on course, and take it in a different direction (brainstorming first to get a basic idea of where it might lead--if I like that, I'll re-outline from there and get back to work on the writing.
