Hemingway once said to write drunk and edit sober. I have to admit that’s a pretty good philosophy. Now I’m not one to condone alcoholism but honestly when I have a little bit of the liquid courage I find that the words fly off my fingers and onto the page. Course it doesn’t have to be alcohol sometimes a good cup of coffee or tea will do the trick. Strange huh?
Even more strange, I get the best ideas while I’m doing something else. The Lost Guardian started to form as I was unpacking from a recent move to California. I’ve even had full blow character conversations while driving back and forth from DC.
All in all you’ll be surprised at what will trigger one’s creative juices flowing.
