Weird Writer’s Habits

Check out this article from Flavorwire examining the preferences of writing conditions of famous authors.

Einstein drinking Mate

Yerba Mate always gets me going. Apparently, it got Einstein going too. Einstein plus Argentinians and Chileans everyday

Not all these geniuses are crazy, but most have established idiosyncratic, hyperspecific habits.

I don’t know how set my own writing habits are. I typically require a stimulant, ranging from caffeine to yerba mate to the occasional adderall. Candles or incense always do wonders for mood-setting. Alcohol is usually a hindrance for me since I quickly become distracted, blurry-eyed and preferential to social rather than non-social situations. Being in a closed off room or an ensconced corner of a library is pretty critical.

Maybe I need to develop some weirder habits to get the literary juices flowing!
