Writer’s Tip for blocks

fairyfriendsI happened upon this tip from io9.com that offers the idea of stopping mid-scene. This means you’re not riding the tide of creativity until completion, but deliberately leaving it hanging with the idea that you’ll dive right back in the next day.

I’m not sure if I can even do that. There’s something addictive to writing as much as I can while the muse fairy is with me. When words just flow, I want to stay until I’m tapped out.

My concern would be ‘what if I stop, and that nice flow simply isn’t there the next day?’. Would this tip mean you get in a better habit of writing, or perhaps it naturally sparks the muse in a more natural way? I’m too afraid to try.

So what are your thoughts? Do you think you’d try it? Post in comments.
