Daily Routines of Creative Types
Check out Daily Routines to read how artists, writers and powerful people organise their days and proceed to feel inadequate. Apparently:
- Biographer Robert Caro values his meticulous routine – and publishes one book, on average, every ten years.
- Winston Churchill had breakfast in bed, along with a little dictation, before rising for a weak whiskey.
- John Grisham used to rise at 5am and be writing by 5.30 so he could be at his lawyer’s desk at the appointed time.
If getting up at 5am is too much for you, you could look for something more congenial in 101 Habits of Highly Successful Novelists, (it’s my suspicion that they all involve a certain amount of pain).
