18 Unusual Habits of Famous Writers

If I had a dollar for every time someone says “writers are weird”…

Like it or not, however, there is some truth to that. You probably even have your own brand of weirdness. Am I right, or am I right?

In the past, we’ve taken a look at peculiar habits of famous writers – from writing naked to writing lying down. Today, I’m sharing more unusual habits of famous writers but featuring different people this time.

Did you know that…

  • Victor Hugo locked up all his clothes except a shawl when he was writing Hunchback of Notre Dame so he couldn’t leave the house?
  • Truman Capote refused to write of Fridays (can’t blame him) and in hotel rooms with 13 in the number?
  • Jack Kerouac wrote On the Road on a gigantic scroll?
  • Agatha Christie liked to write in her bathtub while eating apples. (Apples do wake you up.)

Read all that and more below.
