The Daily Habits Of 5 Famous Writers…

Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please. ~Mark Twain

I must write each day without fail, not so much for the success of the work, as in order not to get out of my routine. ~Leo Tolstoy

Haunted by the desire to write, yet each day ends the same with a blank sheet? Here are the daily habits of famous writers penned by Danielle De Wolfe. Five captured my interests. All seemed to write in the mornings and hated when they were interrupted by family, friends, or the outside world. Here I share my top favs:

  1. Mark Twain. Began writing daily after breakfast. Skipped lunch and showed up for dinner at 5:00 pm. working uninterrupted for hours.
  2. Stephen King Works in the mornings after breakfast to meet his writing goal of 2,000 words daily.
  3. Jane Austin Wrote in the sitting room daily after breakfast with her mother and sister knitting close by. If someone came she would quickly pretend she was knitting.
  4. Charles Dickens wrote in absolute quiet accompanied by his idiosyncrasies of writing utensils (desk by the window, pen, ink and fresh flowers).
  5. Leo Tolstoy wrote in isolation. In his  must write each day without fail, not so much for the success of the work, as in order not to get out of my routine.

Stay tuned for 20th century famous writers’ habits. But for now, what are your own writing habits? Do share. We would love to hear!

Cheers!
