My inspiration


The hardest thing in the world to do is to write straight, honest prose on human beings. First you have to know the subject; then you have to know how to write. Both take a lifetime to learn… As a writer, you should not judge. You should understand.

from By-line by Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway while in Cuba. Much of how he feels about writing is how I feel about writing. I just finished a book that is a collection of his sayings about being a writer, so I decided to do this tribute to him. I can't tell you how much I use his advice and how much his style and ideas have influenced mine.
