Writers' working methods

I'm always fascinated by the way other writers work and organise themselves. It gives me inspiration and also comfort when I find out famous authors have struggled like me.

Two snippets from Writer's Almanac which I keep on plugging as it's full of interesting facts and nuggets.

Hunter S Thompson typed out the whole of The Great Gatsby to learn about writing style.
Dan Brown used a dictaphone while he was out jogging to get to grips with the plot of The Da Vinci Code.
