Famous Writers’ Sleep Habits & Literary Productivity: INFOGRAPHIC

brainpickingsBrainpickings.org created an infographic called,”Famous Writers’ Sleep Habits & Literary Productivity,” which explores the slumbering habits of writers and compares it to their productivity.

To inform the graphic, they gleaned details about sleep habits from biographies and writers notebooks. This was compared to the number of works the author produced and the number of awards they received. Here is more about how the graphic was devised from Brainpickings.org:

We ended up with a roster of thirty-seven writers for whom wake-up times were available — this became the base data set, around which we set out to quantify, then visualize, the literary productivity of each author.

We’ve embedded the entire graphic after the jump for you to explore further.
