A cute little study about the wake up times of famous authors vs. how prolific and how award-winning they are/were :)

According to this, it seems the late risers tended to be more prolific while the earlier risers won more awards. Though they make the disclaimer that there is much more to a writers' habits than just their sleep ones, it's still an interesting read.

Wow, very interesting, although I had quite a start when I thought the asterisk was for those who committed suicide. Then I got the right of it, only to be confused by genre and mixed up fiction and poetry. That had me shaking my head till I checked it and got it right.

The concept of matching their productivity with their awards was insightful. The wake-up times were interesting but I didn't think they held much weight, as the author said.

Fun research indeed.

The little cross footnote symbol is for suicide. The asterisk is for those who lived before the Nobel Prize.

Very cool infographic. Thanks for sharing.
