Here are three daily routines of successful writers:

Haruki Murakami

Haruki Murakami believes that repetition is an important thing. When he is in writing mode for a novel, he gets up at 4 a.m. and work for 5-6 hours. He keeps to this routine every day without variation. Holding to such repetition for a long period requires a good amount of physical and mental strength.

Ernest Hemingway
