Goodreads asked P.D. Kalnay:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

P.D. Kalnay I rarely get writer’s block. When I do, I push past it one of two ways. Either I get up and go for a walk to clear my head or I work on a totally unrelated project until I feel ready to go back the original project. Sometimes, I’ll knock out a children’s book or a poem to shake up a long stretch of novel writing. Smaller projects give a feeling of accomplishment when I’m struggling to finish something larger.
