Hemingway and Alcohol

In Nonesense, Whatever on June 13, 2017 at 10:18 am


Hemingway, I read his book  ‘Old Man and the Sea” and I have read his biography.   Little do I know about Hemingway, he was a complex individual, alcoholic, so they say, but clearly a creative one. Ernest Explains His Deep Love of Alcohol and suggests the only time it is not good is when you write or fight.   Need to do a bit more research regarding his view on alcohol and the influence it may have had on his writing.  Seems to me for an alcoholic he wrote beautifully.

Why do I say this? Have you ever been in a situation where you have a glass of wine and everything is easier including writing. Sit in front of your computer one day after you have had a couple of glasses, turn on your favorite music, make sure you are alone and then quietly stare at your screen.   Ok tell me you are not feeling like you want to express yourself?
