In the fall I have several literary routines:
1. Read my New York Times
2. Delve into one of the past issues of the New Yorker Magazine
3. Review my writing from the work week
4. Curl up with the novel I’m currently reading
5. Spend copious hours watching college and professional football
Number five may not seem like a writerly endeavor, but football has more to offer writers than an excuse not to write.
