5. May Angelou. I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings (Screenplay), Georgia, Georgia (Screenplay), Sister, Sister (Teleplay)
Among her particular practice, Angelou keeps a lodging room in the place where she grew up, and pays for it month to month. At 6:30 A.M. she goes to the inn space of hotel room to compose or write her work. She keeps a duplicate of Roget’s Thesaurus and the Bible with her to give motivation or diversion. She had a strong inclination towards religion with a theory of big mind and little mind. She could d solve puzzle or play cards or read bible with that little mind to approach the big mind to help her with more profound topics she was writing about.
Angelou has some strict behaviors with respect to the hotel room, including not enabling the house keepers to tidy up things, if she disposes of a page and needs it later. She generally writes until around 2:00 P.M., at that point returns home with the pages to tidy them up, which means to make notes and edit topic.
Looking at this particular group of screenwriters some regular formal components are obvious;
- They started to write things at 5:30 A.M in the morning because it’s time to win world by using your inner energy (sometimes, it was a slightly later reasonable hour of writing, say 6:30 or 8: 00A.M still seems early)
- If they didn’t begin early, they tended to begin later in the day (or night) and run throughout the night – which is my own inclination.
- Many of these customs / practices included doing some type of activity, headstands and pushups for instance, however more sensibly – taking calm walk.
- Almost these scholars appeared to coordinate their work with drinking alcohol– either wine or Scotch particularly into their schedules. For some it was just a break.
- Some of them enjoyed taking different medications – including cocaine (Stephen King) and amphetamines (Jack Kerouac).
Famous writers reveal some of the tricks on how to stay productive for a long time. However, now you know five daily habits that can increase your productivity: a writing goal, morning pages, working out, tools for organizational habits, work conditions. You can either apply all of them to your daily routine or keep on developing your own unique practices of habits. I believe true writers do not use universal formulas to stay productive. They are constantly evolving and their habits are not exceptions.
