A Little Tipple to Aid the Creative Flow #amwriting

We are all familiar with the old stereotype of the writer: scribbling away in a dimly lit garret, cobwebs hanging from the ceilings and shelves, shoulders hunched protectively over their latest work of art, and a bottle of something golden and alcoholic sitting beside them on the desk. Ah, bliss!


I know that is a totally unrealistic representation of the 21st century writer, but I still find the romantic notion very appealing. And yes, I do enjoy a drink myself. Indeed, I regularly reward myself with a glass of wine or a bottle of beer in the evenings after I put the children to bed. I deserve the treat, dammit! But I am getting a little bored of the same old bargain booze. I want something different, something that better suits my mood and my feelings about being a writer.

So, I discovered The Drink Shop. Wow, what a selection! I mean, they have just about any alcoholic drink you could dream of. I saw a bottle of Britsh Royal Navy Imperial Rum on sale for a mere £999. Yes, that was in the sale! Blimey. I need to sell a heck of a lot more books before I could even consider purchasing such an extravagant treat. But a girl can dream…

Actually, I am more of a wine drinker, but I am open to suggestions, and I do enjoy a glass of Baileys or a martini and lemonade once in a while. What’s your favourite tipple? My dad is a whisky drinker. My mum enjoys a glass of port on occasion. And now I feel thirsty… Cheers!
