Goodreads asked Elidio La Torre-Lagares:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Elidio La Torre-Lagares First and foremost, I'm a musical person. I write a lot of my work listening to music, particularly post-rock bands like This Will Destroy You or Sigur Rós. But I also listen to classical music, opera and jazz. It all depends on what effect I want to attain in a particular scene. Could be rock, could be new age, or latin. It always sets me in the mood I want to seek, as long as it is early in the morning. Of course, the rest is about the words. Those come in the only possible way: through reading.
