Brilliant Author Jack Kerouac Once Said That This Was His Daily Routine For Writing And Living

Jack Kerouac is the author of On The Road. He also inspired and ignited the beat generation of the 1950s. When asked about his daily routine, Kerouac once said this:
"I had a ritual once of lighting a candle and writing by its light and blowing it out when I was done for the night. Also kneeling and praying before starting (I got that from a French movie about George Frideric Handel), but now I simply hate to write. 
My superstition? I’m beginning to suspect the full moon. Also I’m hung up on the number nine though I’m told a Piscean like myself should stick to number seven; but I try to do nine touchdowns a day, that is, I stand on my head in the bathroom, on a slipper, and touch the floor nine times with my toe tips, while balanced. This is incidentally more than yoga, it’s an athletic feat, I mean imagine calling me ‘unbalanced’ after that. Frankly I do feel that my mind is going. So another ‘ritual’ as you call it, is to pray to Jesus to preserve my sanity and my energy so I can help my family: that being my paralyzed mother, and my wife, and the ever-present kitties. Okay? 
The desk in the room, near the bed, with a good light, midnight till dawn, a drink when you get tired, preferably at home, but if you have no home, make a home out of your hotel room or motel room or pad: peace."
