 In "On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft" Stephen King defined "The Hemingway Defense" as:

As a writer, I am a sensitive fellow, but I am also a man, and real men don’t give in to their sensitivities. Only sissy-men do that. Therefore I drink. How else can I face the existential horror of it all and continue to work?

Besides, come on, I can handle it. A real man always can…

Tonight I'm reminded that there was a Bean who for a short time showed me the size of my heart and imagination...and also how hard those things can beak.

It's Hemingway time.
