A blog in honor of Ernest Hemingway's continual search for the perfect sentence. I'll be writing one sentence a day in the pursuit of the one true sentence—the line that conveys an entire story within itself, without flourishes or sentimentality.

The sun soaked the room with warmth and light, burning away the cold darkness that fed on the couple's nightmares.
Dead now for nearly a decade I sometimes had trouble recalling my friend's features, but his sonorous voice and the feeling I had in his presence remained like a soft fur coat I could pull on to bask in the warmth of his spirit.
I'm an artist and writer. I've published two non-fiction books,"Gilded Age Murder & Mayhem in the Berkshires," (2015) and "Hudson Valley Murder & Mayhem" (2017). I'm currently working on my third book, which is about Edgar Allan Poe and the crimes that inspired his work, due out in 2020 . I'm the co-founder of Fellow Well Met, an online shop specializing in vintage, handcrafted & fine men’s accessories, which launched in April 2016. Andrew Amelinckx
