The People Who Eat the Same Lunch Every Day - The Atlantic
Vern Loomis, a retired structural draftsman in West Bloomfield, Michigan, had a standard office lunch: a peanut-butter sandwich, with various fruit, vegetable, and dessert accompaniments. He ate this, he estimates, nearly every workday for about 25 …

What If All Writing is Just Drafts, Forever? | Literary Hub
Every writer who I studied with in grad school said that the students of theirs who go on to publish aren’t necessarily the people who radiate with the most readily perceptible levels of laser-like talent. Sometimes they are. But no matter what, the writers who publish are always the ones who demonstrate enormous work ethic—who commit to concentrated periods of work, who practice receptivity, who read widely and enthusiastically—who have, it might be said, a talent for working their asses off.
The secret ingredient, if there is one, is the willingness to spend what time you’ve got.
In this country, and in many others, not everyone is permitted the same access to the same quantity or quality of time.
It’s true that not all hardworking writers publish. Often the circumstances that drive the industry are out of our control. But the willingness to write through what might seem to be an unending succession of drafts—however you define “draft”—is one factor that you can control.
A draft is a single step. Your steps—how they look, what they do, how you take them—don’t have to be like anybody else’s. They don’t have to be beautiful or memorable or brave. They can be awful or ridiculous. They can even be unsure. But they have to help you trick yourself into spending the time and doing the work. And you have to take them, all of them, one by one.

Garrison Keillor: Improve Your Marriage In One Day | Reader's Digest
The benefit luncheon in Atlanta is not a happy time. It is an organization of Very Rich People Helping Wretched People Without Having to Be in the Same Room with Them, and it’s full of alpha males of the sort you see strutting around airports with cell phones clipped to their ears hollering at somebody in Cincinnati and gushy women who tell you they adore your TV show and never miss it on Sunday night, even though it’s radio and it’s on Saturday. I give my 15-minute speech, which suddenly isn’t amusing at all, and the president of Very Rich People gives me, in gratitude for my generosity, a hideous Lucite plaque, which I deposit in a trash bin at the airport, and I fly home to Minnesota, and there is my elegant wife waiting at the curb in her car.
