Today’s blog: Mr. Hemingway
I love Hemingway, Ernest Hemingway, that is.
Let me count the ways:
“Write hard and clear about what hurts.”
“Write every day and finish what you start.”
“When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.”
“Courage is grace under pressure.”
“It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.”
“Always stop for the day while you still know what will happen next.”
“There is no such thing as a great writer – there is only great re-writing!”
“Writing at its best is a LONELY life.”
“What is the best early training for a writer? An unhappy childhood.”
“The world breaks everyone, then some become strong at the broken places.”
Ernest Hemingway speaks volumes in my opinion. He uses raw emotion to explain the craft of writing.
My favorite quote?
“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and BLEED.”
