If you've ever wondered about the creative process of famous writers, or want to know about effective writing tools so you can get started on the next great American novel, this infographic will be very helpful. Created by Ninja Essays, Top Writing Tools of Famous Authors lists the implements of some of the most successful writers in recent history.
From Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling's blue point pen to horror royalty Stephen King's fountain pen to romance writer Danielle Steel's 1946 manual typewriter, many of these wordsmiths find the most effective writing tools are the old school ones. While the man behind Game of Thrones is one of the few featured authors who uses a word processor, he still uses an old DOS machine that runs WordStar 4.0. This might indicate writers are not only incredibly creative people, but also have a nostalgic streak.
