Goodreads asked Jennifer Zartman:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Jennifer Zartman I back up and read some of what I've already written. This helps me get back into the story. I think about the characters and the situations they are in. What would they think? How would they react? Is this realistic? Have I imposed something "clever" on them that is outside their normal thought patterns or behavior? How would they approach this problem? As I try to see their world and think their thoughts, ideas start to flow again.
