Goodreads asked Barry Lee Dejasu:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Barry Lee Dejasu Sometimes, you just need to step away and come back to the project at hand. It won't necessarily work every time, but I find FORCING oneself to sit down and write isn't discipline--it's punishment; you end up sitting there, groaning and clutching your head, muttering, "Write...c'mon, write!" - and where's the productivity in that? No, just make yourself comfortable, take a deep breath, and see if you can take another crack at it when you know you're ready.
