London, Oct. 9 (ANI): A new book has revealed the daily routines of the most creative minds that the world has seen.
The book ‘Daily Rituals’ has been written by author Mason Currey.
According to the book, Ludwig van Beethoven rose at dawn and wasted little time getting down to work. He had coffee in his breakfast with 60 beans per cup, the BBC reported.
Poetess Sylvia Plath has also been featured in the book. The book revealed that she was in a near-constant struggle to find and stick to a productive writing schedule. Only near the end of her life, while separated from her husband, Ted Hughes, and she started taking care of their two small children alone, was she able to find a routine that clicked for her.
The book also revealed that Ingmar Bergman followed the same schedule for decades, getting up at 8am, writing from 9am until noon, then an austere meal of whipped sour milk and strawberry jam. And after lunch, worked from 1pm to 3pm, then slept for an hour. (ANI)
