4 Rules: Hemingway’s Way

Earnest adopted the writing style he learned as a cub reporter at the Kansas City Star — short, to the point.

  1. Short sentences
  2. Short paragraphs
  3. Passion in language, and rewrite, rewrite, rewrite
  4. Be positive (say what is, not what isn’t)

What’s crazy is that I decided to stop reporting on what things are not, just the other day. I mean to stop reporting in my own head, too. Negative reporting leads to negative thinking.
