"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." -Ernest Hemingway

According to this quote, maybe I could do some "bleeding"...not on this typewriter, though =)

The highlight of our recent Key West trip, for me, was touring Hemingway's house. Seeing his writing studio was like visiting the Holy Land. One could almost imagine him sitting there every day, "bleeding." The tour guide said he wrote for 3 hours every morning, then went fishing all afternoon, had dinner and hit the local bars until the wee hours of the morning. I'd like to try that approach to life :)
