Orderly, original

April 29, 2014

“Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.” -Gustav Flaubert

I try to maintain the exact same routine every day. Get enough sleep, eat breakfast, exercise, take a shower, make some tea, and then write. That’s not always possible due to my pesky 9-5, but I have a routine for those days as well.

I try to do the same things every single day, so I don’t have to spend time thinking about my routine. That means I get to spend more time thinking about my art.

Embrace routine. Make your life into a system that requires little effort on your part to propel forward, so you can save your energy for the things that truly matter, and the ones you truly enjoy.

As always, thank you for using my Amazon Affiliate link (info).
