Goodreads asked S. Elliot Brandis:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

S. Elliot Brandis I write!

Newton's first law of motion: An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion.

If I'm struggling, the problem is usually the fight to get started (or restarted). The first pushes are the hardest, but once you gather momentum things tend to get smoother.

The only way to get past writer's block is to write.
