Writing Equipment of the Famous

Even the most talented writers get into a blank spot, and most of them have special tools that help them surpass that point. Most contemporary writers rely on writing tools that are not as extravagant as their books are. For Quentin Tarantino, for example, writing is a ceremony. He never uses a computer or typewriter to create his masterpieces, and relies on the technique of hand and pen.

George R.R. Martin uses a more modern tool, but not that advanced from today's perspective. Maybe that's the reason why we have to wait so long for his new books? It’s okay Mr. Martin, take as much as you have to; we still love you!

The following infographic by essay writing service NinjaEssays will inspire you to rely on new ways of expressing your creativity. So ditch the computer once in a while and try using more conventional tools. Who knows, maybe there is a hidden Tolstoy inside you and all he needs is a badass pen.
