When you get writer's block, what do you do to break it?

Sometimes you'll only want results that include an exact phrase. In this case, simply put quotation marks around your search terms. E.g. "cool video games"
If your search term has more than one meaning (bass, for example, could refer to fishing or music) you can focus your search by putting a minus sign ("-") in front of words related to the meaning you want to avoid. For example, here's how you'd find pages about bass-heavy lakes, but not bass-heavy music: bass -music

Ish. Norah in Nick & Norah is very loosely based on my sister Martha, who was a very cool 16 year old indie punk girl at the time we were writing the book.
And I was very close with my grandparents, and one of my cousins has noted that so many of my books have older people who swoop in and save the day. Certainly that was what my grandparents often did for me!

Hi Rachel and David,
I'm a Junior in High School and thinking about becoming a writer since I love creative writing! I was wondering where both of you find your inspiration for writing stories, and when you have writers block how you get through that.
Thanks so much!

I read the info about your book, and it sounds awesome! I was wondering, do you guys have any power foods that you eat when you write? When I have to write, I always eat mint chocolate chip ice cream...it helps me think!

Hey guys. What made you two decide work on a book together? Are you two best friends? How long have you two know each other? What is your favorite part of a book? And why did you choose to write about dares?

Do you like collaborating more when writing a book than just writing a book all by yourself? What are the pros and cons of this?

I'll limit it to ten favorite places or things to do...
1) The Strand
2) Other Music
3) Concerts at Bowery Ballroom, Joe's Pub, City Winery, or The Bell House
4) Vodka pizza at Pomodoro on Spring Street
5) Bethesda Fountain in Central Park
6) H&H Bagels (especially from the factory on W46th St late at night)
7) The Frick (the museum that everyone ignores)
8) On behalf of Rachel, I will say Good Enough to Eat on the Upper West Side
9) Rockefeller Park in the summer
10) In you're of age, the rooftop bar at the Library Hotel

I just read "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" (and loved it). Where did you get the idea?
