Advice For Writers

"The only advice I have for any would-be novelists out there is: don’t. Live a happy life. Become a technical writer; there’s good, steady money in that. If you do decide to become a novelist, names like Pynchon, Kundera, Heller, Broch, Cervantes, Bronte, and Kafka better be near and dear to your heart. If they aren’t, stop writing and spend a decade in a good library."

- David Paul Kleinman tells us what he learnt while participating in National Novel Writing Month.
