What do you do to help combat coders block, or that momentary lack of

-Mock up screens/views in mspaint?
Talk to another developer, ideally in front of a whiteboard. Nothing
things flow better than trying to explain them to someone else. If no
developer is available (this is why I dislike telecommute-only jobs), a
family member, household pet, or bartender may be substituted.
