Okay, if you don’t know it already you know it now. I’m obsessed with Hemingway. All you have to do to know it’s true is to read the stories on this blog. There is the concrete language, the back and forth dialogue and the minimal exposition. Exposition is explanation and a writer should never have to explain what characters are doing. If the the writer draws the characters clearly through what they say and do no explanation is necessary. The reader will get it.
I guess what Hemingway really taught me was to trust the reader.
