Truman Capote wrote lying down, as did Marcel Proust, Mark Twain and Woody Allen.
Charles Dickens, Winston Churchill, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Philip Roth, Lewis Carroll, Thomas Jefferson, Fernando Pessoa and George Sand all wrote standing up.
Roth also “walks half a mile for every page”. Roald Dahl wrote in a shed.
Philip Pullman used to write in a shed, but eventually gave it to an illustrator friend.
Umberto Eco has a converted church as his scriptorium. One floor has a computer, one has a typewriter, one in which he writes long-hand.
Haruki Murakami commutes into a city apartment in Tokyo where he writes.
Gay Talese would pin pages of his writing to a wall and examine them from the other side of the room with binoculars.”
