Welcome to "Torrents of Spring: The Hemingway Community"! I invite everyone to join and post anything having to do with "Papa." Tell us your favorite book, character, or short story; let us know how you discovered Hemingway and how he has influenced your life; or feel free to rant and rave about any topic that you feel would be of interest to the community. Hell, you can even post your creative fiction or your very own "bad Hemingway imitation stories"!

Fun links that may be of interest to the community:

Create Your Very Own "Bad Hemingway Story"!

Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure (yes, it's the Monty Python guy. He's a big Hemingway fan!)

Ernest Hemingway Cookbook - This is a book that collects 120 food and drink recipes from Hemingway's life and art. For those of you who want to drink like Papa, as well as write like him. ;-)

Hemingway once wrote: "All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know." So, I leave you with a piece of advice that I have found to be the truest ever stated:

"Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut."
-- Ernest Hemingway
