Been trying to apply this Hemingway advice as a daily habit when it comes to work - stopping at the right moment and waking up on a fresh note instead of all-nightering it as usual. The difficulty is that finding flow is tough enough that willfully stopping what you’re doing and interrupting it seems like a huge waste. ⚓
"You read what you have written and, as you always stop when you know what is going to happen next, you go on from there. You write until you come to a place where you still have your juice and you know what will happen next and you stop and try to live through until the next day when you hit it again."
