Goodreads asked Nick C. Brady:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Nick C. Brady One way I deal with writer's block is simply reading works by other authors. Reading has always helped me come up with my own ideas. However, when I'm describing a scene I can often picture it in my mind, but have trouble putting it into words. So I get my notebook and start brainstorming on the different descriptive ways to phrase the scene so the reader knows what's happening. One last thing I do is go for a walk in the park and observe everything around me. Looking at the scenery really helps get my creativity flowing. Because I'm not just looking at what's obvious. In my mind I'm seeing a story in everything. The grass, the bushes, the hills, the trees, the shadows, the clouds.... it all has a story behind it in my eyes.
