Goodreads asked Dina Marie Ritz:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Dina Marie Ritz My writer's block lasted two decades until a dear friend introduced me to Relax and Write and I found a writing coach that taught me how to let go of the things that were truly blocking the story, mainly my own fears about losing control of it or having it turn out to be crap. She taught me how to trust myself and not fear where my mind chose to go. Once you get past that fear you can do anything. Remember, you may produce what seems like reams of garbage to you but within those pages of regurgitation is a story trying to get out. All you have to do is be brave enough to see it.
