Maria Popova, Wendy MacNaughton, and the creative team at Accurat have designed a nifty visualization of writer wakeup times as related to their overall productivity—for no other reason than to express an endless fascination with authors and the way they write.

The most important point, perhaps, is a meta one: A reminder that no specific routine guarantees success, and the only thing that matters is having a routine and the persistence implicit to one.

In other words, the more you write, the more likely you are to continue writing, and the higher the possibility that you will one day be paid for it.
