You’re familiar with The Pelican Brief, The Firm and The Rainmaker. All came from this guy.

So how does he get so much done?

John Grisham primarily writes his novels during the winter months on his farm in Oxford, Mississippi. During this period he works five days a week, starting at 7 am and typically ending by 10 am.

Grisham maintains strict rituals for his writing. He starts work on a novel on the same day each year, and starts writing each day at the same time. He works on the same computer. He drinks the same type of coffee out of the same cup.

“My office routine rarely varies,” he explains. “It’s pretty structured.”
