Do you know which authors preferred tea?

My husband knows I enjoy reading all kinds of trivia about writers, and he shared an infographic with me this week that I thought was well worth sharing here. Above is a screen grab of the essential part of the graphic, titled "Opposite Habits of Famous Writers," and you can click here for a link to the full infographic at

I was not a bit surprised to see Jane Austen in the tea camp, or C. S. Lewis, for that matter. I was unaware, however, that some modern authors like Michael Pollan and Stephen King are tea drinkers! I also enjoyed learning about which writers write fast since I, too, write fast. (Everything I read about writing today tells me that I am probably helped by the fact I was a journalist for many years and learned to write on deadline.)

Since so many of you are writers (or aspiring writers) yourselves, I hope you'll enjoy this graphic as much as I did—perhaps while enjoying your morning cup of tea!
