Hunter Thompson

John Cheever

Raymond Chandler

Tennessee Williams

Ernest Hemingway

James Joyce

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Charles Bukowski

Dorothy Parker

Raymond Carver

There’s more, but this list should suffice.  All of these famous authors are / were alcoholics.

I am an alcoholic.

While I cannot even come close to their greatness, I can tell you this…

Drinking beer (I don’t do spirits) stimulates my “idea factory.”  Sometimes I can catch a buzz and write reaves of good stuff, but there’s this “window” and if I miss that window I suck.

I often wonder if it was the same for the famous writers listed above?
