You've heard of the famous Hemingway technique. If not here's a brief synopsis. Hemingway would always stop at a point where he knew what was supposed to happen next as insurance he'd stay excited to get back to it.
The best way is always to stop when you are going good and when you know what will happen next. If you do that every day when you are writing a novel you will never be stuck. That is the most valuable thing I can tell you so try to remember it. -Hemingway
For obvious reasons, this method isn't for everyone.
I've read and have been offered some insane to rage inducing suggestions.
My three basic creative writing tips are as follows:
1. Creating and editing are two separate actions. There are no exceptions.
2. Don't describe an emotion -- make it. (Yes, that's Hemingway again.)
I love comments! Please share what your favorite habits are. What works for you when you pick up the pen and/or type away?
