Writing Quote: Novelist Flaubert's Work Habits

I have just spend a good week, alone like a hermit. I abandoned myself to a frenzy of literature; I got up at midday, I went to bed at four in the morning. I smoked fifteen pipes in a day; I have written eight pages.

Gustave Flaubert in Writer's On Writing, edited by Walter Allen, 1948
