Hello, my name is Claudie, and I am a drinking writer.
In one of my frequent Wicked & Tricksy Twitter Takeover, yesterday, I asked the twitter-verse for research tips.
This was Hektor Karl's fabulous answer: "I spend a lot of time "researching" the wine, whiskey and beer that the characters drink. I should win a Pulitzer."
OK, raise your hand if you do this kind of research, too!
It's an old tradition to associate writers with alcohol. Ages old, I daresay. After coffee, wine is my favourite fuel. Not too much, otherwise I can't line up words into a correct sentence, but there's no resisting a glass of good wine to go with a little creative juice.
What's your favourite alcoholised writer fuel? Wine, scotch, cocktail, beer? Name it!
