Sometimes the best way to get the brain moving on a story idea is by getting the blood flowing in the rest of your body. If stuck, go for a walk, a jog, or a bicycle ride. As doing so, carry a pen and notebook and jot down thoughts that come to you about the story idea. You’ll likely find that the increased oxygen and new environment helps you brainstorm and work through a problem.
