Hemingway's Style and Today's Business Writer -
My commitment to writing traces back to the moment I discovered "The Hemingway Reader." It’s one of the books I’d grab if our house were on fire. The observations and excerpts in Charles Poore’s foreword have shaped my writing efforts in journalism, playwriting, fiction, poetry, technical writing, marketing writing—every kind of writing I’ve ever done. While the foreword focuses on the aesthetics of creating fiction, many of the principles discussed apply to the craft of writing in general.
