Ken Levine has a particularly crafty post about when to stop writing for the day
. Check it out.
If things are going well, I stop when I can't tell if I'm writing crap or not, usually around 12 pages. If things are not going well, I stop when I run into a story problem I'm not solving. Then I walk the dog. Or sleep. Sometimes the answer comes.
I once went to bed telling myself to come up with a comedy series pitch. And I did!

Would it be possible for you to post some of you own writing?
I actually have a few bits in my books. What would you want to read?
Maybe a feature? Something you're proud of. One of the things that's nice about John August's is that he lets spec monkeys like us see what you need to make it.
It's a good idea, but I can't post unsold scripts or unproduced scripts optioned by producers. It blows the hook. As soon as one of them goes into production I might do that. John August has the advantage that practically everything he writes is produced, it seems, so he can post the script without damaging its value, since it's already been made.
Calling bullshit on that. August posts languishing/dead projects; surely you can do the same.
