Goodreads asked Rita M. Gardner:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Rita M. Gardner Hmm. Sometimes I deal with it and sometimes it deals with me (in that I don't get anything written.) But practically speaking, if I make an appointment with myself to write, block the time off on my calendar and sit down in front of my computer, something eventually pushes through the block. The other thing is to just forget about trying to write, go out for a hike or a movie, and then come back and make another plan for writing time.
