Thread: Thought police

    Re: Thought police

    That's exactly what the guy on the next stool said to me the other night. Some of the best writers were alcoholics. And some of the worst.

    You know, I didn't want to own up to the influence of booze on my writing until I had actually published something and it might give my work "flavor".

    But I can see there are no secrets here.

    I\'m new, and this looked like friendly place. I\'ll try not to whine every post.

    I thought that was funny. I've had some good days and some bad days on this "friendly place." And trust me, whining will get you slapped with about 60 threads of impressive come-backs.

    I agree with the, write it no matter what your superego is saying, finish it, put it away then take it apart when some time has passed.

    And I actually drink some wine to get the voices OUT of my head.

    Hi there Leslee,
    Love your ‘insinuation’ that the best, and the worst, writers are common drunks.
    But, you’ve forgot the majority, those in-between; and they are the real heavy gurglers.
    So, update your standings and draw your own conclusions.
    To be a good, average or even a bad writer, you better have 90 proof in your blood.

    Real friends don't let friends write drunk.

    Drunk might be an improvement for some writers.

    A bottle of Old Courage does help some folks write. The real question is can it get you published?

    If you put it in the mail with your manuscript it might win you some points--if the agent is a drunk too.
