[Book Nerd Links] The Daily Rituals of Famous Writers

The Daily Rituals of Famous Writers [courtesy ShortList]

It’s quite interesting, although I could do without the judgmental tone about the de Beauvoir-Sartre relationship.

  1. Really, though, what’s creepier than an honest, open relationship? The de Beauvoir Sartre thing makes me much more uneasy than Victor Hugo’s mistress writing him a letter every morning in which she’d refer to him as her “beloved Christ.” Bet those two didn’t talk about sex.

    • So, not creepy at all! 🙂

      It’s funny how people tend to freak out over others’ sex/intimate lives. Does it matter if it works for them and they are happy/healthy? Nope! People condemn others as creepy/gross/what have you when their own sensibilities are offended, even though it has nothing to do with them. We are a strange nation.

    • It’s pretty inspiring!

      Except for the author’s poor taste in judging a relationship that largely worked for the parties involved. I agree. I’m pretty sure we could find something creepy about every writer featured on that list. It’s totally beside the point, though, as is the sex lives of a long-dead couple in an article about creative routines.
