355/365 - Then you are a writer (Ernest Hemingway)


“All good books are alike
in that they are truer 
than if they had really happened 
and after you are finished reading one 
you will feel that all that happened to you
 and afterwards it all belongs to you: 
the good and the bad, 
the ecstasy, 
the remorse and sorrow, 
the people and the places 
 and how the weather was. 

If you can get
 so that you can give that to people,
then you are a writer.”

  Ernest Hemingway
