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

  • 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

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.

I think that Stephen King is the greatest- or at least one of very top 10 - modern writer and storyteller. Which are two separate things and he excels in both. And yes, I read Dostoevsky and Chekhov, and Joyce, and Jan Genet, and Kenzaburo Oe and Naipaul, which is amazingly manipulating words and texture. And I am grateful to Stephen for his routines: I owe him the immense pleasure of reading. Thank you, Stephen King!
