Finding yourself only occasionally inspired to write things down and get your word work done? One writer, by way of a Hemingway quote, found that stopping mid-sentence left her mental engine primed for the next session.
That doesn't mean, of course, writing half a sentence and stepping away, you sly, sarcastic types. What Nadia Ballas-Ruta got from Ernest Hemingway's short passage on writing was that stopping while you're "going good" leaves your mind with something to develop between now and the next time you sit down to it, whether that's after coffee break or tomorrow:

That way your subconscious will work on it all the time. But if you think about it consciously or worry about it you will kill it and your brain will be tired before you start.
