Introduce something into the lives of your characters that your audience will find funny or interesting, but which isn't directly related to the characters primary focus and interactions.
As example, someone famous in wrestling circles and used to fans knowing who they are finds themselves a bit of a fish out of water when they try something different, maybe fishing and are not recognized. Their likely will be enough of your audience interested in fishing and that they will get a chuckle when the read about someone they know in one sphere as being very knowledgeable and successful making newbe mistakes, learning to appreciated the knowledge people half their size and possibly both younger and older have and are portrayed as a bit more human, something it is my understanding that many celebrities struggle with as they feel a disconnect between how they feel about themselves (being inside just a regular person with some specific skills trying to get by, not get hurt and have a good life) while being tempted and challenged by the extra goodies which can sidetrack them which are often associated with celebrity.

Free write as in "wild mind" about anything, even include your characters doing anything, even something ridiculous, then perhaps your characters will let you know what's going on in the story....and have fun.

~ Studio97:

 

“Wild mind” writing unshackles the psyche.

 

Having fun with characters in improbable settings tends to pulverize writer's block...or...at minimum, gently dissipate it.

 

Thank you for the great suggestion.

Try the Morning Pages approach. Kinda like "wild mind" with a bit of structure.
