Zoë Kors

What time do you get up?
7 a.m.

What time do you go to sleep?
Midnight.

Is your creative work your full-time job?
Yes.

Do you wait for inspiration before you begin or do you begin regardless of inspiration? It works both ways for me. Inspiration and Manifestation have a symbiotic relationship.

How many hours a day, on average, do you do your creative work?
Depending on the day, 2-10 hours.

Do you have a daily routine for your creative work?
Only as dictated by the structures of my life (parenting, clients, general adulting).

How does it start?
Wake at 7a.m., meditate, care for the creatures in the house, make a cup of coffee or tea and settle in at my desk.

How does it end?
In the late afternoon, I assess the day’s work and evaluate what, if anything, is asking to be completed that evening. Often after dinner I’ll go back to complete, rework, or polish what I’ve created.

The routine is as much a part of the creative process as the lightning bolt of inspiration, maybe more. And this routine is available to everyone. —Twyla Tharp
