Goodreads asked Pattie Baker:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Pattie Baker My process includes a lot of visual and kinesthetic research (I think I'm the only writer in the world working at the intersection of street photography and fiction) so I'm not always doing "the paperwork," although the paperwork over the years has included scribbles on everything you can imagine in every situation possible so I keep pens handy. Physical exercise (gardening, bike riding) seems to help me work things out in stories so when I sit down to write, it just flows.
