If it means being able to write about two dozen bestsellers, maybe I should start washing my hands before bed too!

makes a lot of sense.

Not usually a fan of Stephen King, but this is actually a great analogy between sleeping and writing. Maybe I'll give him another chance?

You are my heroe

I'm halfway through the last book in his Dark Tower series right now. The journey has been absolutely incredible. In a way, I don't want it to end. I highly encourage anyone who remotely likes his writing to read it.

I seem to remember (from his autobiography, I think) that he also writes exactly 30 pages a day. Every day.

I admire his works for years and I thought he writes when he is inspired and don't stop for hours...
Interesting routine.
