Reflecting on Writing and Alcohol

Last night, I drank some tawny port from a flagon and went for it.

In the light of today, it was terrible stuff that upon reflection should make me give it up. Writing, not Port.

But, shit, 685 words of crap is still 685 words. Sometimes whatever gets you through the night is worth it.

    What was it Hemingway said? “Write drunk; edit sober.” Whatever gets you into the zone, whatever gets the words out, within reason, I’m all for it. You can fix it later, but you can’t fix what you don’t have!

    (Although sometimes alcohol makes my brain like pulled taffy. Then it backfires.)
