John Steinbeck on writing

I received a brief telephone call in 1964 from a stranger.  I thought I might meet the caller, the Nobel & Pulitzer prize writer, John Steinbeck, but all he wanted from me was information about the whereabouts of a mutual friend.  Pity, it probably would have been a memorable experience.  I never learned how he got my telephone number or why he selected me from a large number of friends to call.

Brainpickings seem to have printed Mr. Steinbeck's advice on writing, part of a larger series of a vast number of other writers.
