Goodreads asked Vani Kaushal:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Vani Kaushal A writer's block, is it real or imaginary? For most part, I think it is just created in a writer's mind, and maybe stems from the need to achieve perfection. We want every sentence to be correct, every plot development to lead to something big, every character to be of some consequence. Whenever I am in such a situation, I just give up all expectations from myself. I just write, crap or good. I write whatever comes to my mind and several hours later, I edit or delete what I have written. After a few hours/days everything starts to make sense. I agree with author Nora Roberts when she says, 'you cannot edit a blank page.'
