Goodreads asked Marcy Dermansky:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Marcy Dermansky I have two different methods. One is having an assigned writing time. I turn off the Internet and remain in my chair for the amount of time I predetermine and usually that works. I start typing.

My other method is to wait until I feel really terrible. Let a month pass, or longer, and then, eventually, I begin again because it is the only way to stop feeling terrible. I do not recommend this method.
