How to best exit short options when crash is imminent

Hi all,

Assume that option selling is the primary activity here. Also assume that you have identified that current volatility levels indicate an imminent crash.

How would you get out of your open positions? Would you continue to sell more positions due to rich premiums and possible finance the exit or square off with loss?

Crash if any is temporary. Long term the direction is up. Just hedge your positions. That is enough.
