What I do at the end of a writing session to keep the flow going.

As a writer I am lucky in that I can sit down in a disciplined way and write. I always have ideas and they flow onto the page without much trouble at all. One of the things I am sometimes asked by fellow writers is how do I keep the continuity going from one day to the next when there are breaks between writing sessions.
For me, that is as easy thing to answer, I never finish a writing session at the end of something. If I have reached the end of an action piece or the end of a chapter, I always start the next part or chapter. It gives me a pick up point and I can get back into the rhythm and flow of what I was writing before I stopped. If I am pushed for time for some reason, I will write a few sentences and add in bullet points of what is to come so that the thread of the story continues as seamlessly as possible.
It is a tool that has served me well in my writing and may help you to, so give it a try and see how it works for you.
