Generally speaking, three things, all basically designed to free my mind to let it do its thing.

One, I try to have five or more things in process at once. That way when I get stuck with one I have others that I can work on.

Two, take a shower. Silly as it sounds, for me my mind comes up with a bunch of ideas. Plus, it's relaxing.

Three, I drive to a bunch of events. If I keep having problems with a story, I will have times during the drive where my mind is especially creative. I have a voice recorder on my phone that I record whatever comes to mind. Then, when I have a chance to listen to it, I do two things. One, cringe at hearing my voice. Two, see where those random ideas take me. (less)

Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“It was arranged like a drunk triangle. None of the walls were straight. Each had some odd angle, and most had two. Tables and benches lined each section, and a long one stretched down the middle.”
Rob Howell, I Am a Wondrous Thing: The World of Shijuren

“A Man Sentenced to Life Can Always Spare a Few Moments”
Rob Howell, The Feeding of Sorrows
