Links to a well written article about WXZ and a few anecdotes not found in that article. Have fun reading them!  

Newspaper article. Brief life history of WXZ.

The anecdotes of WXZ and his wife. 
Wang Xizhi liked to travel around the famous mountains and rivers. Whenever he saw the scripts of famous calligraphers, he would carefully imitate such scripts. It is said that when he was 53 years old, he still kept the habit of imitating the styles of ancient calligraphers. Once he went to bed, he still drew characters in the air with his fingers. Unconsciously, he moved the fingers on his wife's body. His wife was sulky and said, "Why do you always draw characters on other's body? Where is your own?" When Wang heard "your own," he suddenly realized that he should create a calligraphy style of his own. Later, he finally formed his unique style by concentrating others' merits.

Wang Xizhi, a famous calligrapher in Eastern Jin dynasty (31- 420 AD), began studying calligraphy in his childhood. After he became an adult, his calligraphy standard became higher. In order to be able to write good calligraphy, he practiced it all day in the studio and even forgot to eat and sleep.

Once, he wrote a character from morning to night, from night to late evening. His wife brought him a meal. He was too busy to eat it. This was because there was one character that he had written many times but he still did not like the way it looked. The meal became cold and it was warmed many times. Unconsciously, at the time that the rooster started to call, he finally realized that he was hungry. He grabbed a bun, soaked it with soybean milk, and started to eat. 

While he was eating, he suddenly knit his brow. There was that one character he did not like. So he started to rewrite that character while he was eating. At that time, his wife came in and asked him to rest. When she saw him, she was surprised. Then she started to laugh.
Because Wang Xizhi was so concentrated on writing the character, he did not realize that he had soaked the bun with ink. Obviously, he treated the ink as soybean milk by mistake. His wife brought him the mirror. Wang Xizhi looked at the mirror and started to laugh because his mouth was full of ink.
