Goodreads asked T.M. Carper:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

T.M. Carper Driving and music. When I'm really stuck, I'll go for a nice drive--maybe a long distance errand or a visit to a friend--and crank up the music. It's amazing how sometimes that gives me an idea or I find a song that hits the right feeling or emotion and sparks new interest in a stalled work. I will also sometimes make Sims out of my work-in-progress characters to kill time and see what happens.
