She identifies Marcus Aurelius 's Meditations as her favorite book on philosophy.
I would plan the heist for months, scouting out the target, looking for unguarded entries. Then I would break into his deepest vault, steal all his emotional currency and spend it on myself.
This always left me feeling abandoned and invisible; love that could be quenched was not nearly enough love for me". Do you prefer any particular music or silence while you write? Complete and total silence.
How many hours a day do you spend writing excluding email, social media, etc. My best mind is my mind at dawn, after a good night of sleep. I usually wake up with the solution on the tip of my brain to the creative problem of yesterday, and then I go running to my desk to try to catch my intelligence before it drains out of my ears.
By 2pm, I am useless for anything except simple manual labor. Do you write every day or adhere to any particular system? At the beginning of a book, I establish a rule that I must not stand up for two hours.
Two hours every morning, committed to just sitting there, whether the words are coming or not. Toward the end of project, I discipline myself in the opposite direction: I make myself stop, call it a day. You get squishy-headed and full of bad ideas. Better to walk away, go to sleep, come back fresh.
If so, how do you avoid it? I combat it through gentleness toward the self. Anything you fight, after all, fights you back. I just try to coerce, persuade, encourage, bribe, and trick myself into returning to work. And I diminish the stakes by reminding myself that none of this is actually that big a deal. Writers are some of the most dramatic people who ever lived, but in fact, what is at stake in the work of writing is kind of … nothing.

Enjoy the making. Let it go. This line of thinking brings me great peace. Gets me out of my own way. Who are your favorite authors, online or off? Can you share a best-loved quote? By the poet Jack Gilbert no relation : We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure, but not delight.
Not enjoyment. We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world. How would you like to grow creatively as a writer? Bigger, faster, stronger.
Who or what is your Muse at the moment i. Specifically, their amazing powers of resilience. What makes a writer great? Big brain, bigger heart. What hardware or typewriter model do you presently use? I work on a MacBook Pro.
Committed: a Sceptic Makes Peace with Marriage by Elizabeth Gilbert
What software do you use most for writing and general workflow? I use index cards handwritten for keeping my notes and research in order, and crummy old Microsoft Word for actual composition. Do you have any tricks for beating procrastination?
Do you adhere to deadlines? I was lucky enough to have had discipline instilled in me by my very organized and Calvinist mother, who taught us to work first and play later and maybe not even play so much, actually. She also taught us not to become perfectionists, which is where a lot of procrastination and time-wasting occurs. Nothing is less efficient than perfectionism.

Her great adage, which I still adhere to, was: Done is better than good. There is not enough time in life to quest for perfection.
