  • 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

How much from the book is new content versus what we've already seen on the blog?


Thanks, Nick. And good question. Of the 161 people in the book, 33 of them also appear here on the blog -- but, in almost all of those cases, the description of their routine in the book has been better researched and more fleshed out than what you'll find on the blog.

Any chance this book will be released for iBooks?

Hi, Bob -- Yes, the book will be released for iBooks. You can pre-order it from the iBookstore now.

Congrats on turning the blog into a book! My prime writing time is in the early morning, about two hours a day, every day. People always ask how I find the time to write so much, and that's really all it is. Up early, writing lots. Every day. :)

Just discovered the blog/book thanks to NPR. Loving it so far--congrats on the book!

Mason Currey, on top of having one of the coolest names I've come across in recent memory, you also have created my single favorite blog on creative rituals. You should know that I have bookmarked "Daily Routines" on four of my computers (two work, two home). I've been enjoying it for at least five years. I'm a novelist and I enjoy reading what others have to say about their processes.

I'm immediately buying this book (although the library where I work also owns it: http://catalog.jclc.org/record=b2745225~S1).

Cheers to you. (And seriously, I keep a list of names for characters to use in my future projects and BOTH Mason and Currey - I spelled it Currie- are already in it.)

I cannot wait to see what you've done with the book version of this blog.

All best!
