Goodreads asked Jeanne Moran:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Jeanne Moran For me, writer's block happens at one of two times: when I'm trying too hard or when I've been away from a WIP for a while. In either case, I handle it by trying to become buried in the story, like the way feet along the shore can be buried by repeated waves. I get into position - chin slightly lifted, eyes closed, fingers on the keyboard. I let my characters and settings and problems wash around me. Usually in minutes (although admittedly sometimes longer), I am submerged in the story. Then I let the story reveal itself through my fingertips.
