Goodreads asked Rita Arens:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Rita Arens I deal with writer's block by reading books, lots of different genres. Also short stories -- their brevity often drives home a central point better than a novel and gets me thinking about what message I want to bring to my readers with that particular novel.
