John Grisham and the Writing Process

I’m alway curious about how excellent writers write.

Grisham’s Writing Tips

1) Starts every year on January 1st with the goal of being done by July (most of the work is done by March).

2) Writes 5 days per week.

3) Starts every day at 7 am and ends at 10 am.

4) Writes between 1,000-2,000 words per day, but very few 1,000 days.

5) No internet in his writing office.

6) Same everything (computer, spot, coffee, cup, everything).

7) Doesn’t write the first scene until he knows the last.
