Tips from the master

Want to be as successful as Nobel laureate and multiple prizewinner J M Coetzee?  Why not copy his working routine:

Coetzee is known as reclusive and eschews publicity to such an extent that he did not collect either of his two Booker Prizes in person. Author Rian Malan has said that: “Coetzee is a man of almost monkish self-discipline and dedication. He does not drink, smoke or eat meat. He cycles vast distances to keep fit and spends at least an hour at his writing-desk each morning, seven days a week. A colleague who has worked with him for more than a decade claims to have seen him laugh just once. An acquaintance has attended several dinner parties where Coetzee has uttered not a single word.”

Life and soul of the party.  It worked for him; maybe it’ll work for you! [AR]
