Inspiration Monday: Hemingway

This is the prose that I have been working for all my life [The Old Man and the Sea] that should read easily and simply and seem short and yet have all the dimensions of the visible world and the world of a man’s spirit. It is as good prose as I can write as of now.

Ernest Hemingway to Charles Scriber, 1951

Isn’t it reassuring to know that even one of the greatest writers of all time spent years perfecting his craft?
