Goodreads asked Ann Steele:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Ann Steele I've experienced this frustrating issue a few times in the fifteen-plus years I've been writing fiction. What works best for me is to not try and force it. I'll continue to think about the story and how I want it to progress, but I avoid trying to write it. I also keep reading. Eventually I'm able to break through my block and get back to writing.
