Goodreads asked Doug Cooper:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Doug Cooper The two things I do to remedy writer's block are as follows:

1) Go For A Walk: The change of scenery, the visual stimulation, the movement, and fresh air can all dissolve the blockage and spark some creativity.
2) Freehand Journaling: Grab my journal and a favorite pen and just start writing whatever comes to mind. The objective is to just get words down on paper. Usually within a page some ideas crystalize.
