On writing: Gut-check from Ernest Hemingway

"I happen to be in a very tough business where there are no alibis. It is either good or it is bad and a thousand reasons that interfere with a book being as good as possible are no excuses if it is not. You have to make it good and a man is a fool if he adds or takes hindrance after hindrance to being a writer when that is what he cares about." -- Ernest Hemingway
