More from Ernest Hemingway

“When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.”
“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.”
“There’s no rule on how it is to write … Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly. Sometimes it is like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.”
