    How informative are the routines of industrial age practitioners when reach a break point like we are in now? The experiences of the past will be less and less meaningful as we go forward. We can look back to these routines as we look back today to 18th century agrarian novels as we attempt to understand farm life before corporate agriculture.

    DW Rasmus, I love and respect futurism and futurists greatly – my father is one – but I think it’s worth noticing that the folks, mostly writers, who are covered range in time period from the 1700s to contemporary and often have remarkably similar schedules according to temperament, profession, habits (smoking, excercising, napping) and working methods, regardless of whether they’re from colonial New England or modern Japan. Technology transforms the way we work, but only to a certain extent. There are patterns of human psychology that are sufficiently deep-rooted that technology can only bend them a bit, not really break them at all, and I think the way we organize our lives into routines is one of them.

    It’s all about how writers go about there day and try to write.

    Most novelists seem to write in the morning for 3 or 4 hours. Daily, consistent, limited sessions rather than occasional binges seem to be the norm for prolific writers.
    Thanks for this post.
