Commonplace

“The trouble with the drinking, much as I hate to admit it, is it helped the [writing] work.  The first two drinks were always wonderfully liberating. You think better. You’re braver, and you’ll say anything. If you could just hang in there with two or three, it’d be beautiful. The trouble was I couldn’t.”

 

—Barry Hannah
