Goodreads asked Tony Hays:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Tony Hays If I don't know what I want to write about, I free write, hoping something emerges from the morass. But if I have an idea, in general, as to where I want to go, then I skip torching myself on how to open it, and just dive into the middle, knowing I can come back to to my opening later.
