Goodreads asked Lorrie Sprecher:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Lorrie Sprecher Quite frankly, I deal with writer's block by becoming aimless and depressed! But as that is terribly unhelpful, I try to keep in touch with my writing by editing and sending out unpublished work. I am happiest when working on a new novel, and when I cannot do that, something that cheers me up is writing short-short fiction. This feels like the opposite of writing novels, and sometimes switching forms can liberate my mind from its non-writing stupor and get me going again.
