It's worth repeating—the story that Sinclair Lewis was to lecture about the craft of writing to a college class of aspiring writers. He began by asking: "How many of you are really serious about being writers?" All hands shot up. "Well, why the hell aren't you all home writing?" And he walked out.
Other versions say he sat down. Whatever he did, that was the end of the lecture.
