Truth in Writing


I have been reading some really great books lately, and there are some amazing lines that really made me step back and go WOW….
For example, consider the following writing by Ernest Hemingway in “A Moveable Feast”:

Sometimes when I was starting a new story and I could not get it going, I would sit in front of the fire and squeeze the peel of the little oranges into the edge of the flame and watch the splutter of blue that they made. I would stand and look out over the roofs of Paris and think, “Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now. All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”

Really, makes writing look so simple….and something we should all consider when writing our blogs. There are some really convoluted ones out there, which I don’t want to name here 🙂
If anyone wants to know more about “A Moveable Feast”, here are some links:

I highly recommend this book!
