From the writing perspective:
- Read a lot. That builds the story imagination. I guess when this is applied to other disciplines, e.g. gardening, strategising, cooking,
- Use writing prompts. I'm not sure what to use in other areas… What's the equivalent with respect to gardening, strategising, cooking
- Talk to people.
- Go on a walk.
- Refer to your notebook/ journal
- Steal like an artist. Use other people's ideas and switch them up. Don't plagiarise.
