An American Great’s Words of Wisdom

Ernest Hemingway is one of the most iconic American writers of the 20th century, if not ever. In an interview he did, Hemingway is quoted as: “I write every morning as soon after first light as possible.” He went on to say that it is because there was never anyone to disturb him that as the morning warmed up so did his work and that was when he had the most creative juice and inspiration to work. While I am not a particular fan of the early morning, there is definitely something to what he said. Every published author that I have personally known has said something similar to Hemingway; that there is a certain time each day where every writer works best and it is up to you as a writer to find that time and work every day on your work during that time. For me, it is late into the night, around 1 in the morning and ever since I started following that advice, I have made huge progressions on my personal work an projects.
