Goodreads asked Daniel Clausen:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Daniel Clausen I don't have writer's block! I have re-writer's block! I love starting new projects, creating new characters, and imagining plots. But re-writing stories--smoothing out dialogue, re-imagining characters, doing research to fill in holes--this can be as tedious as any job. In fact most day jobs are less tedious and more rewarding than this part of writing. And yet, this kind of work is the difference between so-so writers and great writers.
