Goodreads asked Renita D'Silva:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Renita D'Silva I read other authors. I cook. I catch up on housework. I take a complete break from writing and, as it happens, in a day or two, when I am doing something completely unrelated, washing the dishes, say, or reading an author in a genre very different to mine, I will get an idea and will be suffused with the desire to set it down on paper.
