It’s really interesting to read this article about the daily routines of famous writers. A lot of it is from before computers became extra appendages for so many of us, and seems a bit quaint for it. I like seeing photographs of writers who have been merely fuzzy mental portraits with words trailing from them like comet tails that communicate. And it’s always fascinating to writers and readers alike to learn just what makes some of the creative powerhouses they admire the wordsmiths they are. It can be surprising to learn just how quirky and vulnerable and human they really are or were.
