Goodreads asked J. Scott Sharp:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

J. Scott Sharp I seriously don't believe in writer's block. I know it's flies in the face of everything everyone has ever told anyone about writing. I believe you write or you don't. You either sit down in a chair and make words, or you don't. I am not saying that it isn't harder sometimes than others, but you either sit in the chair and write or you don't. It doesn't have to be manna from heaven every time you sit down, but it does have to be words placed in the word processing software of your choice. If we all waited until inspiration fell down on our typing hands, nothing would ever get written.
