Goodreads asked Doris Gaines Rapp:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Doris Gaines Rapp I have written four books and re-released another in the last year. So far I haven't gotten writer's block. I keep a jigsaw puzzle in an open window at the bottom of my screen, also my 2 email accounts, Facebook, Goodreads, and LinkedIn in other open windows. If my mind needs to be "entertained" while I'm writing, I put a few pieces of puzzle in place or check in with social media. When I need to cut some words, paragraph or other data, I put it in another file called "stuff" so I don't lose my great words of prose. You will find ways to "entertain your mind as you go along.
