“One day, you’re 17 and you’re planning for someday. And then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life.”
― Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises
Such beautiful writing.
How do you keep a friendship together when your lives are pulling you apart?
“Somewhere I put it this way: first drafts are for learning what one’s fiction wants him to say. Revision works with that knowledge to enlarge and enhance an idea, to reform it. Revision is one of the exquisite pleasures of writing.”
“But how could you live and have no story to tell?”
“Good instincts usually tell you what to do long before your head has figured it out.”
