"How artists work, how they ritualize their days with the comforting (mundane) details of their lives: their daily routines, fears, dreams, naps, eating habits, and other prescribed, finely calibrated "subtle maneuvers" that help them use time, summon up willpower, exercise self-discipline and keep themselves afloat with optimism. Artists considering how they work--in letters, diaries, interviews, beguilingly compiled and edited by Mason Currey. Portraits that inspire, amuse, and delight and that reveal the profound fusion of discipline and dissipation through which the artistic temperament is allowed to evolve, recharge, emerge. From Beethoven and Kafka to George Sand, Picasso, Woody Allen and Agatha Christie; from Leo Tolstoy and Henry James to Charles Dickens and John Updike, here are writers, composers, painters, choreographers, playwrights, philosophers, caricaturists, comedians, poets, sculptors, and scientists on how they create (and avoid creating) their creations. A Sampling of Daily Rituals Charles Dickens Dickens's eldest son recalled that, "no city clerk was ever more methodical or orderly than he; no humdrum, monotonous, conventional task could ever have been discharged with more punctuality or with more business-like regularity than he gave to the work of his imagination and fancy." Dickens rose at 7:00, had breakfast at 8:00, and was in his study by 9:00. He stayed there until 2:00, taking a brief break for lunch with his family, during which he often seemed to be in a trance, eating mechanically and barely speaking a word before hurrying back to his desk. On an ordinary day he could complete about two thousand words, but during a flight of imagination he sometimes managed twice that amount. Maya Angelou I keep a hotel room in which I do my work--a tiny, mean room with just a bed and, sometimes, if I can find it, a face basin. I keep a dictionary, a Bible, a deck of cards, and a bottle of sherry in the room...

Probably the kind of book you should keep next to your bed, or, if you're that kind of person (and I am), in the bathroom, for occasional reading. A wonderful cross section of artists included here, from writers to inventors, architects to painters, and philosophers to composers. While there was a certain number of artists for whom Benzedrine popping helped get the work done, there we just as many who required nothing more than the same breakfast daily (eggs seem to be a favorite). I was struck by for how many walks (more than once daily) and naps seemed to provide the day's main structure.

So. I have the main structure down. Now to fill in the gaps between walks and naps more profitably! ( )

This was interesting and I learned that there is no perfect schedule. Also, it’s perfectly ok to not follow the masses (duh) and just go by what you feel works for you in terms of “the perfect routine”. ( )

I only made it about 10% through the book before realizing this was not the book I wanted to be reading. It's a collection of habits about individual people with no analysis behind why they do what they do. That being said, this is probably for the best, since I wouldn't trust the author to make such an analysis. ( )

Deciding HOW to read this book was the challenge as it jumps from one artist or writer to the next in a encyclopedic fashion. But I decided to read continually from one biographical portrait to the next and allowed them flow into one another to a satisfying result. So much so that I finished the book in a day. Endlessly fascinating and amusing if you happen to be seeking your own 3-4 hour window each day to create.


Lessons learned? Many wake and work in the pre-dawn hours, walk many a mile, imbibe impressive quantities of coffee, tea, booze and amphetamines, and have loyal friendships, servants and understanding partners. ( )

There is no obvious organization to this book. Likewise, there is no obvious commonality in the habits of the artists it describes. There are night owls, and early risers. There are workaholics, and work avoiders. There are those very strict with themselves, and those who are very casual about what they do and when. And so forth.

Still, it was interesting to see the variety of styles that was their daily routine. ( )

Who can unravel the essence, the stamp of the artistic temperament!  Who can grasp the deep, instinctual fusion of discipline and dissipation on which it rests!

Introduction:  Nearly every weekday morning for a year and a half, I got up at 5:30, brushed my teeth, made a cup of coffee, and sat down to write about how some of the greatest minds of the past four hundred years approached this exact same task--that is, how they made the time each day to do their best work, how they organized their schedules in order to be creative and productive.
