      Hemingway is one of the best authors I’ve ever read. Reading that quote from him is almost enough to make me take a drink! 🙂 I guess what he’s saying is that you have to let go of your inhibitions, fears, anxieties and worries in order to really write well. Then you should sober up to edit what you’ve written. It’s good advice. I know that when I write from my heart, completely free from inhibitions, the readers have said “Wow!” Of course, the fact that Harper Collins Reps aren’t beating my door down might mean my opinion on what Hemingway said doesn’t really matter all that much. We shall see.
