(Short List)   Five hours of drinking. Ten hours of sleeping. A few hours of writing. We doubt we'll write any novels following the daily routines of these creative minds, but we don't really care   (shortlist.com) divider line 16

I'm guessing large blocks of "food/leisure" are the drinking part.

I find drinking to be great for my creativity, but often I'm not together enough to actually create.

I have millions of great ideas before I go to bed with absolutely no question that I'll remember it and work on it in the morning. Then I forget the whole thing.

I'm torn on this between a) a chart like this misses the point on "creativity" trying to quantify it into some business-oriented graph or spreadsheet and b) creatives need to be less "dreamy" and admit that the real work gets done by applying oneself to regular practice.

One of my favorite quotes.

I don't work with inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs. I just get to work.

I wonder if this chart can be adapted to measure George RR Martin's productivity over a couple of decades?

I am wildly creative in that golden hour of woke up still drunk from the night before, and the hangover kicking in,


Follow up on those ideas will have to wait 24 hours.

I often have a few ideas circling around my head. The ones that keep circling are the ones I tend to work on.

The first idea, I've actually completed a first draft of a novel for. It's getting an extensive rewrite right now, because I went back and read it, and realized how much like a 14-year-old boy I sounded.

The second is a Transformers idea that has reared it's head with every film release so far. This year, I finally decided fark it and am going to see how far I can take it.

CigaretteSmokingMan:


How in gods name could he eat that much food while doing so much coke? Aside from the acid, sounds like a nice day.

Sounds like a joke designed to scare Nancy Regan.
