The daily routines of 5 famous writers its not easy to be a writer its require patience intelligence skills and a perfect routine. Here we have the routine of 5 famous writers who are very particular about their daily routine- 1- stephan king there are certain things he does before he sits down for writing i have a glass of water or a cup of tea. Theres a certain time i sit down from 8:00 to 8:30 somewhere within that half hour every morning he explained.
I have my vitamin pill and my music sit in the same seat and the papers are all arranged in the same places. The cumulative purpose of doing these things the same way every day seems to be a way of saying to the mind youre going to be dreaming soon. From 8:30 to 11: 30-13:30 writing two thousand words no matter how long it takes. King does not takes breaks on holidays or on his birthday and does not allow himself to stop until he has fulfilled the daily norm of 2000 words.
He says day and evening are free you can doze off write letters read communicate with relatives and watch the tv. 2- ernest hemingway when working on a book or a story i start writing every morning with the first rays of the sun. no one can interfere cold or even cool you sit down to work and keep warm while you write. you read what youve written and started with the episode when you know what will happen next. you write as long as you have the strength and while you understand what will happen after then stop and try to live until the next day when you again hit this case.
suppose you started at 6 am and worked until noon or finished earlier. When you finish you are so empty and at the same time not empty but filled as if as when you have made love to someone you love. nothing can hurt you nothing can happen everything does not matter until the next day when you come back again. 3- haruki murakami when im in writing mode for a novel i get up at 4:00 am and work for 5-6 hours. In the afternoon i run for 10km or swim for 1500m or do both then i read a bit and listen to some music. I go to bed at 9:00 pm.
I keep to this routine every day without variation. The repetition itself becomes the important thing; its a form of mesmerism. I mesmerize myself to reach a deeper state of mind. But to hold to such repetition for so long six months to a year requires a good amount of mental and physical strength. In that sense writing a long novel is like survival training. Physical strength is as necessary as artistic sensitivity.
4- a.m. Homes she often uses pencil and paper to write as it allows for better connectivity but she will then quickly type things up as she cant read her writing. A.m.
Homes constantly revises her words. While writing she prefers to drink coke or tea and snacks on chocolate soup crackers and peanut butter. Homes meditates although by her own admission she doesnt do it often enough although she does believe in the importance of just taking the time to notice both the outside world and the inner states. 5- simone de beauvoir im always in a hurry to get to work although in general i do not like the beginning of the day. first i drink tea and then about 10 hours i sit down to work and continue until one oclock.
then i meet with friends somewhere at five oclock i go back to work and do it until nine. i do not have problems in order to then catch the thread of the narrative. in the break i can read a newspaper or go shopping. most often i enjoy working. If the work is to be done i spent 15-30 minutes reading the text that i wrote the day before and am making some corrections. then i start from the place where i finished. to pick up the storyline i just need to read what ive already written.
