I remember reading this profile of a famous author online where he gave tips on writing. One that always stood out was the he liked writing in public places like malls to either get ideas and/or to train his brain to tune out external distractions better. I've actually adopted this a few years ago with great success and basically disappear into my laptop when I write because of that practice.
Anyone have an idea who it could be? I thought it might be either Aldous Huxley, Ernest Hemmingway, George Orwell, or Isaac Asimov, but I've so far been unable to confirm this.
