I came across this list while reading, Hemingway, a Biography, by Jeffery Meyers and thought I’d pass it along. Pretty solid advice from a guy who seems to have done all right for himself…
Hemingway’s Basic Principles of Writing
Study the best literary models.
Master your subject through experience and reading.
Work in dedicated isolation.
Begin early in the morning and concentrate for several hours each day.
Begin by reading everything you have written from the start or, if you are engaged on a long book, from the last chapter.
Write slowly and deliberately.
Stop writing when things are going well and you know what will happen next so that you have sufficient momentum to continue the next day.
Do not discuss the material while writing about it.
Do not think about writing when you are finished for the day but allow your subconscious mind to ponder it.
Work continuously on a project once you start it.
Keep a record of your daily progress.
Make a list of titles after you have completed the work.
