“Fishing in the Swamp,” a cross-post from Antonio Dias Fiction

This post, at The Living Notebook gave me the title and the impetus to write on this subject here.

The line comes from Hemingway and TLN – I’m sorry, but the blog appears to be anonymous and I don’t have the writer’s name… – uses it to weave a connection between two approaches to writing.

We tend to either write while “fishing in the river,” a line from a Nick Adams story in Hemingway’s collection: Big, Two-Hearted River. Or we come around and finally “fish in the swamp.”
