“I can’t stand it to think my life is going so fast and I’m not really living it.”

Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

Fact: Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald are my two favorite authors of all time. I can reread their works over and over again without ever getting bored! I also tend to read both concurrently. Think of it as a parent of two boys not wanting to show favoritism for one over the other; but I do it because I enjoy counterbalancing their distinct writing styles with each other – whereas F. Scott Fitzgerald is fantastical in his excess, Hemingway is fantastical in his simplicity.
