How Long Has Hemingway’s Seasoned Many Writers?

Vacationers in the hills above Park City, Utah, might be forgiven for failing to see the hand of Ernest Hemingway behind the mile-long, colorfully blazoned sign at Horsehead Lake Lodge. Hemingway spent his summers at nearby Ketchum in the 1920s, but most of his writing did not take place there. Instead, he composed In Our Time at his Key West home, then finished it at a cottage in Galice on Key Largo Island. While there are stories of Hemingway spending time in places like Finca Vigia, and jaunts to Cuba, the nearest he came to writing from within a building is this twenty-two room lodge and its expansive deck overlooking two-thirds of the Utah lake.
Horseback, a novel about a group of writers vacationing in the area, is actually based on Hemingway’s experiences the summer after his wife Hadley gave birth to the couple’s only child. The novel was written before the outbreak of World War II, but not published until after Hemingway’s death in 1961.
The book’s author was fortunate enough to enjoy an extended stay at his subject’s cottage on the island, and to experience a bit of writing inspiration: “There were times when I thought ‘somebody could write a book about this location,’ ” he said in a 2001 interview.” The only thing that would’ve been missing from it was the knowledge that Hemingway had actually spent time there. I was unaware at that time that Hemingway had written a novel using his experiences at Horsehead Lake as the basis. I came to find out much later.”

In Conversation With Writer & Blogger Ken Jenkins

The hotel’s owner and manager, Ken Jenkins, is a writer and blogger on local topics. In his spare time, he runs a small publishing business: Kelp Journal Books. Jenkins has authored three books in the “Kelp” series. With a landlocked location, and a passion for hospitality, it’s natural to connect the dots between what Jenkins has written about Hemingway and the lodge he manages. That connection became more obvious to me, than it should have been.
I didn’t realize, until now, that Ken Jenkins also owns and manages “Horsehead Lake Lodge and Event Center”. I mean, from the looks of the place, he certainly appears to be in his element. He knows the area well. His years of experience show in the lodge’s style and ambiance; it’s obviously a labor of love! This is the only place I’ve ever stayed at that allows dogs (even non-service dogs). I could be wrong, but I’ve heard they don’t allow cats.
At the start of our interview, Jenkins showed me a folder with some photos from his years in Cuba that he’d brought along. He told me about a series of photographs he’d taken of local “sex tourism” spots that he’d posted on his blog at our breakfast the next morning. He told me about the music we were going to hear, and about a friend who was going to sing for us. He talked a bit about his working relationship with the chamber of commerce. “We’re friendly competitors”, he would say between one comment and another, “but we respect one another”.

A Short History of Writing Tips: How Will They Change In The Future?

At some point, Jenkins envisions that we’ll read our writing on tiny screens, with virtual environments and tailored content. Writing will be about interacting with a predictive interface that’s seamlessly integrated with an agent and other software–one that can not only modify the way we write, but also adaptively train us to write better.
He suspects we’ll be writing less and thinking more. “In the age of Google search, a lot of our information needs are taken care of by an agent,” Jenkins says. “And I think that will become increasingly true for the creation of content itself.”
In the future, he says, software will do a lot of work for us: “We may spend more time engaged in curiosity, thinking about things that we want to learn about or be reminded about. I think there’ll be a lot of things that will ask us, ‘What do you want to know about X? What’s new in Y?’ and things like that.”

This is a real-life situation that occurred in the small town of Arkadelphia, Arkansas and the victims have taken this matter and created a wiki page about their experience called “The Slumber Party Victims Wiki.
Here is a link to the actual wikipedia page about the case for those who are unfamiliar with it: “The Slumber Party Victims Wiki”.
