Goodreads asked Lara S. Ormiston:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Lara S. Ormiston My answer is not a very admirable one--I go write something else. I tend to work on lots of stories at once, which is entertaining for me, but doesn't lead to a whole lot of finished stories.

One thing I have found helpful when I'm trying to figure out what needs to happen next to ask myself what this particular character's objective is, what they are going to do next in order to accomplish it, and what obstacle I can put in the way.
