Goodreads asked Vera Mont:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Vera Mont The best answer I've ever heard was "Drink beer and stare at the ceiling" but I can't recall who said it. It's never worked for me: beer is an inducement to stop caring and find some amusement. To break a block - whether in writing or another endeavour - I find it's best to set the work aside and take up a different project. I always have several abandoned projects to choose from - and usually start a new one instead.
