Goodreads asked Bill Bowling:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Bill Bowling Writer's block isn't an issue with me because I can always find something to write about. If I get stuck on a present project, I'll give it a rest, read the news and write responses to stories that affect me just for practice. I won't do anything with them, but the process helps me to realize that you never run out of things to say; rather, any stuckness comes from an obstacle I've set up for myself, and I write my way through it and move on. Another way I deal with 'writer's block'(?) is that I have few different projects going at once, and if I get stuck on one, I'll move over and work on another. I'm aware that that kind of juggling doesn't work for some folks, but it's something that works for me.
