Hemingway, David Foster Wallace, and Back to the Future

By Kate Gavino
Transient

Did you hear? The English language is on its deathbed.

Maybe a peppy blurb is all it needs to bring it back to life.

After all, there's nothing quite like a Hemingway endorsement to make anything legitimate.

Although, David Foster Wallace could probably give him a run for his money in the fanbase department.

But as long as what you're doing can be turned into a catchy song, you're good.

Though, writing such a thing is hardly a walk in the park.

If only everything came with a convenient FAQ, life would be so much easier.

But not even a piece of flash fiction can be summed up that easily.

You're probably just better off scribbling away furiously in your Moleskine.
