I don't deal with writer's block. I'm a poet, and author of short stories and quotes. I wait for the next event in my life, painful or pleasant, and then decide to write. I've wrote about situations I feel strongly about, and also situations in the lives of people close to me. It could be an emotional event, happy or sad. My heart will let me know if I should write about it. Then the words will come. Everything I've ever written comes from a situation in my life, or something I've reflected on and thought deeply about.
