Work Habits

Ray’s 10¢
“My passions drive me to the typewriter every day of my life, and they have driven me there since I was twelve. So I never have to worry about schedules. Some new thing is always exploding in me, and it schedules me, I don’t schedule it. It says: Get to the typewriter right now and finish this. . . . 

I can work anywhere. . . . [W]hen I wanted to write Fahrenheit 451, I went up to UCLA and found a basement typing room where, if you inserted ten cents into the typewriter, you could buy thirty minutes of typing time.”

—Ray Bradbury (1920-2012), writer, interviewed in The Paris Review, 2010
• Editorial Comment: Jeesh. What might a quarter have bought?
