Goodreads asked Colleen Helme:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Colleen Helme I keep a notepad by my computer and when I get stuck, I will ask "What if" questions and just write down a whole bunch of different scenarios. Usually, something will click and I'll go with it. Other times, I just keep writing. Even if I have to take it out, at least I'm making progress. I've often found that some of my best plot ideas come about by pushing through it without knowing what's going to happen beforehand. Those times are very rewarding.
