Stupid writer trick?

“I wrote a note next to my bed… ‘Mike! You have an appointment at Café Pedlar at 7 a.m. — with your mind!

And I would show up! I never didn’t show up, and I wrote this movie [in] spurts of essentially three hours, like I’d write from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., and the reason why I would do that is because I was essentially barely awake. Because I feel like that moment, at 7 to 10 a.m., you’re not afraid of the world yet.”
