William Faulkner Outlines on His Office Wall the Plot of His Pulitzer Prize Winning Novel, 'A Fable' (1954)

Josh Jones at Open Culture.

"Plotting the chronology on the walls helped him become fully immersed in the novel’s density, but, writes education blog Enotes, 'not everybody was so pleased with the method': 'Faulkner’s wife, disappointed with the decision, had the walls repainted. In return, Faulkner rewrote the outline and then shellacked the wall to ensure a permanent record.'"
