Goodreads asked Hu Yuan Nabe:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Hu Yuan Nabe Writer's block is doubt. When I'm feeling unable to put anything good down, I know that it's a current feeling of self doubt, not ability. I say something out loud to the effect of, "I release all self doubt." Sometimes I clap my hands, or snap my fingers, and know at that moment, the doubt is gone. I then sip my green tea and get to work!
