Lives for gear
If you are able to upload the music somewhere like Soundcloud ...

That's what I tend to do whether stuck or not. I like to upload incomplete songs because it seems to give me a totally different perspective than when listening in the DAW. It's like I become more of an audience and less self critical and I'm able to better hear the song and where I think it should go.

I also 100% agree with working on several songs at a time - your mood may dictate what kind of track you prefer to work on. It may not be a daily/temporary mood, it may be that you prefer to work on certain material during the winter vs summer. Or you may had heard another song, and gotten influenced and want to explore a similar technique. For example, I had been watching DnB tutorials the last 2 months, and ended up halting work on 3 projects to work on a DnB inspired track.
