Easy as A, B, C . . . from BB
In blogs and interviews, a lot of authors seem to be asked about their Work Habits; for instance:
“Thinking is the activity I love best, and writing to me is simply thinking through my fingers. I can write up to 18 hours a day. Typing 90 words a minute, I’ve done better than 50 pages a day. Nothing interferes with my concentration. You could put on an orgy in my office, and I wouldn’t look up—well, maybe once.” ~ Isaac Asimov
OK . . . so now I feel bad . . . because I’m no Isaac Asimov!
“I find that in the course of the day when I’m writing, after three or four hours of intense work, I have a splitting headache, and I have to stop.” ~ Edward Albee
“It sounds shameful, but on my best days I write only about three or four hours.” ~ Anne Bernays
OK . . . I feel better. These quotes came from W.O.W.: Writers on Writing by Jon Winokur on “Work Habits.”
