Craig Wright, my favorite creative writing Professor, gave the class the following challenge, which he in turn took from Hemingway. This is what Hemingway said: "Write just one sentence; write the truest one you know." I don't remember what I wrote at the time but today in class, I was creating this beautiful doodle of a sea unicorn and a crab with a samurai face on its back(the latter does exist and is quite remarkable.) I was too tired to draw anymore and was looking for a way to complete the page. So I came up with this sentence: "You cannot enclose the universe in a book." I look forward to seeing what the rest of you come up with.
