I do the old writers trick of always stopping one step before I run out. If I see the story going to a certain point, I will stop short of that point so I basically have a runway when I pick it back up again.
If the first season seemed a bit like The Breakfast Club, with Taylor Schilling’s Piper in the Molly Ringwald prissy-little-princess role, eating sushi for lunch at detention, the second is the sequel that never happened: The Breakfast Club 2: One More Saturday Morning.

Sit down and put down everything that comes into your head and then you’re a writer. But an author is one who can judge his own stuff’s worth, without pity, and destroy most of it Collette
The one thing people might be surprised about—Roger said that he didn’t know if he could believe in God. He had his doubts. But toward the end, something really interesting happened. That week before Roger passed away, I would see him and he would talk about having visited this other place. I thought he was hallucinating. I thought they were giving him too much medication. But the day before he passed away, he wrote me a note: “This is all an elaborate hoax.” I asked him, “What’s a hoax?” And he was talking about this world, this place. He said it was all an illusion. I thought he was just confused. But he was not confused. He wasn’t visiting heaven, not the way we think of heaven. He described it as a vastness that you can’t even imagine. It was a place where the past, present, and future were happening all at once. Roger Ebert’s Wife, Chaz, on His Final Moments via http://www.esquire.com/blogs/news/roger-ebert-final-moments
