Goodreads asked Paul J. Joseph:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Paul J. Joseph Some days are simply not writing days. Some days there is no wind for your sails. Sorry, but that's the truth. Rather than complaining and dragging it out, do something you like. Ride a bike, climb a hill, take a walk, start a new hobby. If you must write, convince yourself that you are writing only for yourself. Try writing an essay instead of a story. Write a diary if that helps. Inspiration is worth waiting for.
