Who’d have thought that my odd ticks as a writer were tame in comparison to the masters of eccentricity?
- Truman Copote wrote lying on a couch, with a drink in on hand and a pencil in the other.
- A Newsweek reporter stripped down to his boxers to work so he didn’t wrinkle his clothes.
- An acclaimed female author writes facing a brick wall, saying among other things that it seems a fit metaphor for being a writer. Heh.
- Hemingway created only 500 words a day, telling a friend he got one page of masterpiece for every 91 pages of sh**t.
- And the list goes on.
And, if you’re a writer or artist of any kind, feel good about your own messed up process ;o)
