Hemingway had his own special way to write. He used short sentences, short first paragraphs and used vigorous English. He told his stories very directly and didn’t use many unnecessary adjective.  His revisions were more often additions than cuts and he added details for clarity and depth. He gave advice for other writers, such as, write from life, blending fact and fiction.
