10 Odd Writing Habits Of Famous Writers


  1. 2 Jack Kerouc's Candle



    “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, hopeful of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” - Jack Kerouac

    Best known for his legendary novel On the Road, Jack Kerouac is credited with pioneering the Beat Generation in the 1950s. He was also, quite frankly, kind of a nut. Kerouac usually wrote by candlelight and would kneel and pray to God before every writing session to ask for preservation of his mind (because he was slowly losing it). He'd blow out the candle to signify he was done writing for the night.
