Agatha Christie: Writer

When Agatha Christie would write a story, should sit in her room with a typewriter and paper.  She would start the rough draft, early in the morning and would write for three days straight.  She would finish the rough draft of her novel within those three days.
This happened because she would set herself up.  She knew her characters and had an idea of what she wanted to write.  Then on the time she choose, she just typed for three days straight.
Back in those days, a published author could live off a book for a year or two or more.  But the world changed.  A writer these days needs to get published, nearly an impossibility these days or self publish four books a year just to earn a little cash for holiday.
