When well-known authors are asked to describe their typical working day, it’s common for them to say they spend hours with their butts in their chairs. They show up to write in the same way they’d show up for a job that required them to work set hours.
A sample schedule: Every weekday, from nine to twelve, they write new material. They break for lunch and a walk. Then, from one to three, they work on revisions and rewrites.
That’s five hours of concentrated writing time, five days a week. Twenty-five hours of weekly writing.
How can they write for twenty-five hours a week when one hour maxes you out?
