Goodreads asked Payal Kapadia:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Payal Kapadia I deal with writer's block by biting my nails off and pacing up and down. :) Of course, that doesn't help! Then I resort to long walks, long baths, long reads of other books. Nothing helps writer's block like creative distance. When you find yourself stuck, it's possibly because you're immersed too deep in your work. It's very, very hard to do, but it helps to walk away from it all, for a little while. In my book 'Wisha Wozzariter,' a fable about the creative adventure of any wannabe writer, she faces a writer's block, too.
