Regular writing, at one particular time which is for me in the early morning, after meditation and close before I start getting ready for office.
I travel lot of places, keep a thin notebook on my back pocket, and write anything interesting that crosses my path.
I try to be immersed in 'now' and take everything in total awareness.
These give me enough material to write, when I get down to write. As I have the whole three part series in my head for decades, I keep adding material to it.(less)

So I go about writing the book with a particular person in mind, a cousin, a colleague or a student and see how I can keep his/her interest in the story and when I feel that the person is losing interest, I bring in something totally different to jolt him out of his reverie. So while writing, I am in conversation with this reader/person and go about writing / presenting the story to this particular person. When finally I have finished the story telling, I edit/edit and edit more.
I have a method of doing the structuring, I paste post it notes on my table with characters, story line and timeline and I keep juggling them to find the right structure that appeals to this imaginary/real reader and me.(less)
