Danielle Steel has written 179 books, has 9 kids, works 20 hours a day, is worth $350 million, holds the Guinness record for most consecutive weeks on the bestseller list (381) and oh god I’m getting tired just tapping all this out
“Dead or alive, rain or shine, I get to my desk and I do my work. Sometimes I'll finish a book in the morning, and by the end of the day, I've started another project," Steel says.
One has to (perhaps grudgingly) admire the incredible work ethic of someone who wrote 179 books, had 9 children, and labors for 20+ hours per day every day - all without coffee. She doesn’t understand the obsession with “work-life balance” #daniellesteel
, I didn't imagine I'd finish this profile of Danielle Steele when I started, much less find myself utterly absorbed by it.
Reminds me of Garth Marenghi: “I’m one of the few people who’s written more books than they’ve read”
This article on Danielle Steel is incredible. She: - is the fourth-bestselling fiction author, with 800 million copies sold - has written 179 novels - has nine kids - has been married five times - works 22-hour days - lives on small dark chocolate bars
Find a passion that makes you feel just like Danielle Steel, who says “I want to die face-first in my typewriter.”
