Goodreads asked Umberto Tosi:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Umberto Tosi I keep on writing daily, even if it's one paragraph. Mostly I turn to background, research and imagining my characters. Of course, often this becomes more self-distraction, as I meander through the Internet, read various books I have going, take a walk, play music, and so fortth. Then there's always the refrigerator and I like to cook. At least I can create something reliably in the kitchen and then, better yet, eat it! I remind myself of what Alice Weaver Flaherty said in "The Midnight Disease," that only a writer can have writer's block. That would make it a good thing.
