Now, my dinner with Hemingway might be a bit awkward...seeing as I've never actually read any of his work (something I plan to amend as soon as possible). It also may be a bit strange trying to explain to him that I'm from eighty-some years in the future and was named after his wife. But I digress.
What I'd absolutely have to do would be: get all the writing advice I could, learn a bit about my namesake firsthand, and get one of my dad's Hemingway books signed for him. And then hopefully F. Scott Fitzgerald would show up and I could sit back and watch the verbal tennis match that would ensue as they offered up their famous criticisms of each other. I don't know what I'd do if they asked my opinion...Hemingway's more imposing when angry, but I've actually read Fitzgerald's work...awkward...
I leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Ernest Hemingway on Writing.
"The good parts of a book may be something a writer is lucky enough to overhear or it may be the wreck of his whole damn life - and one is as good as the other." - Hemingway in a letter to Fitzgerald, 1929
