"My advice for aspiring writers..."

My advice for aspiring writers is to go to New York,” Mr. Kirn said. “And if you can’t go to New York, go to the place that represents New York to you, where the standards for writing are high, there are other people who share your dreams, and where you can talk, talk, talk about your interests. Writing books begins in talking about it, like most human projects, and in being close to those who have already done what you propose to do.

Walter Kirn’s advice for an aspiring writer also describes perfectly what I love about plying the user experience trade in San Francisco. Found in the article A Critic’s Tour of Literary Manhattan - NYTimes.com
