All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.

Ernest Hemingway

Author Ernest Hemingway is known for his brusque, straightforward writing style, in both his narration and sentence structure. While Hemingway’s novels are renowned, his memoirs are equally respected, painting vivid and unflinching pictures of the First World War and Paris’ “Lost Generation” of artists. It’s no surprise, then, that Hemingway advised looking inward when setting forth to write. These words, from his Paris memoir “A Moveable Feast,” urge us to look for that spark in ourselves. Everything we need to start can be found within our own lives and experiences.
