You Decide:

Blacklist.com recently published a post in their series, Dumb Little Writing Tricks that Work, which you can see here.

The post suggests not to finish scenes when you end work for the day. The idea is that when you pick up the next day, you will have the momentum of being in the middle of the scene to power up your writing.

Some of the feedback on the article shows that readers think the opposite! Commenters suggest that stopping the scene halfway risks losing the feeling of the scene.

We're putting this question to you. Would you rather finish your scene and have to start the next day with a whole new fresh one or begin with the unfinished one that you left yourself from the day before?

We at the Screenwriters Colony are starting an ongoing series of post that allow you the reader to take the spotlight. You can post your comments here or on our Facebook page. We want to hear from you!
