A twist on an aphorism...
« on: January 11, 2019, 08:16:12 AM »

We've all heard the familiar phrase: write drunk, edit sober. But recently I came home drunk and decided to edit a piece of writing (i write all the time) and I couldn't wait long enough to get sober (i had been drinking for 6 hrs straight at that point). what i found really astounded me. editing drunk is fun! Maybe not as much fun as writing drunk, but definitely more fun than editing sober.

I encourage my fellow writers on this forum to try it out. Write drunk, edit drunk all the way!!!

Alcohol and drugs are crutches for the creatively crippled.

Very cross with you today, Hoog.

Take a lap.

A drunk lap.

New aphorism:

Instead of "Write drunk, edit sober"

What about "Drink."
