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)

“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
