Write Lying Down—And 7 Other Strange Habits of Famous Creatives (That You Should Try)

Posted by on October 25, 2012 under Social Media

Every once in awhile, routines turn into rituals. And, as the new Bud Light advertisements contend, “it’s only weird if it doesn’t work.”

We’re not suggesting that you start massaging your pencil or wearing a pair of lucky undies that supposedly gets your creativity jump started, (but hey, if it works we won’t judge). Rather, we have a few ideas that are a little more conventional that many famous creative minds (such as Charles Dickens, Ernest Hemingway and David Ogilvy) used with success.

Strange habit suggestion number one: try writing horizontally. If Mark Twain can crank out Huckleberry Finn while lying down, we think it’s worth giving a shot. And perhaps this change in position was just what you needed to relax enough to get creative.

Check out the article below for seven more unusual habits you should consider trying.
