“Every man should have a built-in automatic crap detector operating inside him.” — Ernest Hemingway

 

I was a teenager when I first came across that quote from Hemingway. He was speaking about the most valuable quality that a fiction writer should possess. Crap detection kept writers honest, according  to Hemingway, and fiction writers needed to be honest. Their job was to “invent out of knowledge.” This can mean writing about what you know, about personal experience. Better yet, it should mean constantly educating yourself, so that your fictional worlds ring true, with or without personal experience.
