Becoming a Writer

---I met, not long ago, a young man who aspired to become a
novelist. Knowing that I was in the profession, he asked me
to tell him how he should set to work to realize his ambition.
I did my best to explain. 'The first thing,' I said, 'is to buy quite
a lot of paper, a bottle of ink, and a pen. After that you merely
have to write.'---
-Aldous Huxley, novelist (1894-1963)
