Goslings golden rum.

It's a horrible habit I have. I drink when I write. For some reason the words seem to flow better and I don't have nearly as many second guesses and self edits when I've reached that very precise level. I'm not drunk. I'm mildly buzzed. I'm still functioning but I'm just happy and carefree enough that the story takes wing and goes onto that white page without me worrying about what people are going to think or what they're going to see IN ME when they read it.

I then go back the next day and tighten up and do small edits, but I force myself to keep the main gist of what I've done there.

I have been teaching myself to write completely bone dry sober but when I've got something particularly nerve-wracking to put down on paper, a little Jones sugar-free creme soda and golden rum comes in very handy.

Yes, I'm a lush. (but to be honest, part of that is from working in insurance 22 years.)

And if I ever get anything of any consequence sold, I'll be needing a liver transplant.
