Goodreads asked Cathy Perkins:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Cathy Perkins Every author has their own definition of writer's block. For me, it comes in two forms. Since I'm still working the day job and have several other balls to juggle, the first is simple exhaustion. It's hard to be creative when you're dead tired. At that point, I have to step back and assess priorities rather than stress out.
The second is the dreaded, what happens next? Fortunately I don't hit this one often, but when I do I brainstorm with friends. Sometimes it gets completely out of control and leads to great ideas for future books. :)
