Why One Hasn't Written A Novel

John Updike's goal is 1,000 words a day. Richard Ford awakes at six so he can begin as soon as possible. Philip Roth follows Nathaniel Hawthorne and Thomas Wolfe in preferring to stand for hours on end. Oh, the discipline and routine needed to be a writer.


  • I especially liked the part about Richard Ford waking up early AND making breakfast for his wife before getting down to work!!! House chores as well as inspired works?! How do people do it?
