I’m interested in getting your thoughts about stuff I see and hear, quotes I read, stuff that passes as knowledge – and starting an authorey conversation.
Again, like I’m gonna disagree with Hemingway…
But it’s true. Sure, you can teach new authors stuff, or help an inexperienced writer get through a few hoops; I do it all the time. A lot. But in the same way magicians are never supposed to reveal the secret to the audience, allow for that mystique to linger. I’ll admit it’s hard, but I make it look easy. Because it is easy. For me, it really is. Except the stuff I hate, like editing. That’s hard. And editing is part of writing. So writing’s still hard for me. See?

Cool Hemingway story. My uncle was driving one of the small boats into Normandy with Hemingway on it. Later, Hemingway wrote a magazine story about the ordeal and my uncle is in it. I have the book with the collection of magazine articles in it. My cousin now has the dollar bill that Hemingway signed.
