Nick Greene wrote a piece for Vice about copying the routines of famous writers. It put a smile on my face.

Did Balzac really drink 50 cups of coffee a day? Does Murakami actually wake up at 4 AM? For a week, I tried to live like famous writers. It went poorly.

I've put this on saved on my computer to read when I have more time, Hula. I always welcome things (encouraging only 😉) about writers.

I doubt it will encourage you, the best thing here is to find your own routine. Writing is difficult and hard work. That is my humble opinion.

I once saw a beautiful coffee table book about writer's rooms. It explained to me why I can't write!

Yes it is hard work, but it's also incredibly rewarding. I do have my own routine, I treat it like a job, writing everyday for set hours. Still, I love to read inspiring quotes.
