William Faulker is one the most beloved American and Southern writers to have lived. He was also quite prolific in his work. This famous quote hints as to why. Faulker said… “I only write when I am inspired. Fortunately I am inspired at 9 o’clock every morning.”
That is, he made a habit of writing. It was part of his daily ritual like brushing his teeth or drinking a cup of coffee. Those who aspire to attain similar levels of productivity would do well to follow his lead.
