Goodreads asked Ann Townsend:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Ann Townsend I start bs'ing. I let random thoughts and words flow out of me. They may or may not be related in any way, shape, or form to whatever topic on which I am writing. Eventually, a thread starts to take hold. Eventually, a string starts to form. Eventually, a fabric starts to gather. Eventually, I can see the world through the words. Eventually, I can hear the voices of the characters instead of my fingers tap, tap, tapping on the keyboard.
