Goodreads asked Karen Emilson:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Karen Emilson I see writer's block as an inability to access that place inside where creativity begins. I've never sat down in front of the computer and been unable to write, but not too long ago I experienced a period of time that included many personal losses and couldn't write about anything except those experiences. My creativity was gone otherwise. So instead of writing, I read a lot, studied, researched and outlined my most recent novel which I wrote once I'd worked through the grief.
