Ernest Hemingway

When I am writing I like to read thoughts by writers on writing. I have a book called Ernest Hemingway on Writing, a collection of quotes from letters and books:

Eased off on the book...in May because Dr. said I worked too hard in April, and May fine month to fish and make love to Miss Mary. I have to ease off on making love when writing hard as the two things are run by the same motor. [from a 1948 letter to Charles Scribner]

I am applying to be the Assistant Dean of Students in the College of Fine Art. It seems like a good fit for my combination of skills and experience.
