Quotations

  • Habit is not mere subjugation, it is a tender tie: when one remembers habit it seems to have been happiness.
    Elizabeth Bowen

  • Sooner or later, the great men turn out to be all alike. They never stop working. They never lose a minute. It is very depressing.V.S. Pritchett

I normally don't stray too far from fantasy and sci-fi when I choose a book to read, but "Daily Rituals" has me entranced. As an artist, I find it oddly comforting that others have as many creative quirks as I do. Upon finishing your book I wanted more, so I was pleased to find out that you have a blog too... Hopefully, you'll make posting on this blog part of your daily ritual... We want more!

I just really love your blog. checking in here was part of my daily routine.

I depend on this blog for motivation! You need to post more frequently! Even my therapist reads it now after I told her about it. Maybe you should outsource these posts and have people help you research more routines.

It's fascinating to see the economics of this, the ability to set work aside for so much time. I wonder how many writers can do that today?

Being busy now that's novel. Imagine being so busy that we are not coping. The real trick is to accept that the list never ends, the only way to get off the list is to ignore it for a time. Being routine about stuff will usually mean we get a lot of stuff done but it doesn't stop us being busy. Don't forget to stop and smell the posts.

we want daily! we want daily!

I agree for writing or anything staying organized and focused is key to your utlimate success.

Cool concept. I think I'm going to do an interview similar to this one over on my blog. Thanks for the idea!

Obviously Simone de Beauvoir's routine works well, if he/she can afford to take a 2 month vacation. We should all be so organized and/or lucky.

Its really interesting to read what writers have/had to say about themselves and how they work/worked...t. Maybe you should outsource these posts and have people help you research more routines.

Very informative! Keep up the awesome work... :)

Wow. Organizing your time in this day and age, that's going to get hard. Unless a writer takes away all the electronics, maybe even the computer and sticks to just a pen and paper...quite possibly there won't be as many distractions......and go to somewhere like Tuscany - that actually sounds rather nice!!

such a great blog, mr/ms daily routines editor, please continue this supply of fascinating psychic reference points!

I second this:
"Here's an idea: how about making posting a new daily routine a new daily routine!?"

salon.com gave your blog a shout-out.

Very interesting blog!

Please continue this blog, I really enjoy it...

Or at least post an status update, if it´s on hold or dead...

Great blog! Its really interesting to read what writers have/had to say about themselves and how they work/worked.

don't let them get you down. we just really love your blog. checking in here was part of my daily routine.

Get the feeling that this blog is dead.... :(

Hello we can has a wall post?

Hey blogger! Here's an idea: how about making posting a new daily routine a new daily routine!? Love the blog, but the crowds are getting restless!

I relate to many of your interviewees, and to those that I don't relate to, I am inspired to do even more.

Second all the comments above. I depend on this blog for motivation! You need to post more frequently! Even my therapist reads it now after I told her about it. Maybe you should outsource these posts and have people help you research more routines. Find an English major at a nearby university with too much time on their hands. :)

MEEE TOOOOO - please post an update! :)

Uhm, great blog! How about posting from time to time?

how long will we go without a new routine? I am jonesing for my daily routine fix!
