Hemmingway to the Rescue

I always have trouble verbalising some of my deepest held thoughts and I get excited when I find references to the same pattern much eloquently expressed by somebody else and I go like "Yeah! This is it"
Anyways here is the quote where I used to say you should stop at n-1 when you know the next stop is n because there is no fun when you know whats going to happen next. In fact thats the secret for long lasting relationships

"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 … you will never be stuck. Always stop while you are going good and don’t think about it or worry about it until you start to write the next day. 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."
