An uncial sample - G B Shaw quotation

Pickwick posted a topic in The Write StuffI found this quotation from Ernest Hemingway: "In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it blunt and dulled, and know I had to put it on the grindstone and hammer it into shape, and put a whetstone to it, and know I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well oiled in the closet, but unused. The first forty nine stories I find expression in letter writing, and sometimes at a loss what to write about. Hemingway got me thinking, those things we find we have to do which we may not like, we can easily miss the smallest thing which might interest another. If we enjoy writing, then often the dullest things in our lives which we are compelled to do can have a glimmer of interest if we look close enough.
