Inspiration At Five O’clock Sharp!

In his book, The War of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle, American author Steven Pressfield wrote this about English playwright, novelist, and short-story writer William Somerset Maugham:

Someone once asked Somerset Maughham if he wrote on a schedule or only when struck by inspiration. “I write only when inspiration strikes,” he replied. “Fortunately it strikes every morning at nine o’clock sharp.”
