Hemingway on writing

“Am here in La Coruna waiting for proof…. Which now ought to be here and I hope to God it comes. Need to read some bloody thing I’ve written in order to convince myself that ever have written anything in order to eventually write something else. Maybe you know the feeling.”

Ernest Hemingway, to Barklie McKee Henry, 1927

From Ernest Hemingway: Selected Letters, Carlos Baker, ed., quoted in Ernest Hemingway on Writing, Larry W. Phillips, ed.
