“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 makeing love when writing hard as the two things are run by the same motor.”
– Ernest Hemingway, Letters
ORDERS: If you love a writer, get him or her (or them) a copy of Ernest Hemingway on Writing, edited by Larry Phillips (1984). If you are a writer… think on your mind-body’s relationship between creativity and sex. Can you fuck and write at the same time? (You know what I mean.) Do you need to alternate? Does one use up energy for the other?
