BOOZE AND BOOKS

Which is better either booze or books or both? Some authors prefer a choice of their drink and write great stories or show their creativity over booze. Sometimes spending more time only on books gives a bad headache. But the combination of booze and books allows the power to intoxicate themselves and writes smoothly. Some of the epic authors in the history are also legendary drinkers. So here are a few authors and their signature drinks. You will get to know that when you throw a literary booze/cocktail party.

Now I am suggesting you to booze daily to write a book. “Write drink and edit sober” is a catchy phrase until you realize you can write multiple sentences if you over booze. Anything in excess in harmful for health. Few authors are in the history who died due to excess alcoholism. To each author they have their own way of doing things.

Here are some authors who drinks can give spark to your creativity.

1. Ernest Hemingway: Mojito

Hemingway was an enthusiastic drinker, to say the least. He indulged in a wide range of beverages, but the mojito was his particular favourite. The mojito was invented at La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana, Cuba, where Hemingway liked to hang, drink, and write. Or, as he put it, “A man does not exist until he is drunk.”

022

2. Jack Kerouac: Margarita

His writings were so beautiful and died because of liver failure. His favourite drink was classic margarita.

023

3. Maya Angelou: Sherry

Maya Angelou loved writing with sherry. It was part of her daily routine. She’d rent a hotel room and settle in with a legal pad, an ashtray, and a bottle of sherry, to get the creative juices flowing. She didn’t feel the need to wait until cocktail hour.

021

These are some of the great authors who prefer their favourite drink and write beautiful and heart-touching stories.

Rich people do write some great stories and they do prefer boozing. Big fat weddings starting from match making which is done by Ultra Rich Match targets niche segment of the market.
