Hemingway on writing

by on 08/05/04 at 9:00 am

You must be prepared to work always without applause. When you are excited about something is when the first draft is done. But no one can see it until you have gone over it again and again until you hae communicated the emotion, the sights and sounds to the reader, and by the time you have completed this the words, sometimes, will not make sense to you as you read them, so many times have you re-read them. By the time the book comes out you will have started something else and it is all behind you and you do not want to hear about it. –Ernest Hemingway, By-Line: Ernest Hemingway
