Be regular and orderly in your life, like a bourgeois, so that you may be violent and original in your work.
Gustav Flaubert (1821-1880) French novelist
“This quote inspired me as a writer and to be very disciplined about my writing. I’m more disciplined about my writing than anything else with the belief that if I am true to my writing practice and schedule, then the work will surprise me with its originality and its creativity.”
