This is a bit of sheer fun.
Ever wondered what authors get up to in their spare time, how they react to the daily chore of writing, or what their nastiest habits are? Well, wonder no more. You can find out at Buzzfeed’s amusing list of ’18 Weird Things That Authors Do‘. The page is slow to load, but bear with it because it’s daft enough to be worth it. And if you’re not giggling by the end you’re made of stronger stuff than me.
As to how true it is… well, I draw the line at number one (eww…) and at number six because I don’t smoke and have a caffeine intolerance. Everything else is pretty much guilty as charged.
What are other writers’ gruesome habits or guilty secrets?
