So, after the past few days I've came to notice that different substances can affect your writing. I wanted to see what everyone else thought about this. I'm just going to stick to what I found with alcohol, since I unsure whether the forum has any drug rules or anything. Anyway, I've been writing pretty much non-stop for the past four days, and I'd usually drink coffee when working excessively. However, on a normal day I drink anywhere between 4-6 cups of coffee, and now it doesn't even keep me awake. So I decided to spice things up a little, and I've went through about half a bottle of whisky since Friday (Writer's Tears whisky, appropriately named). Anyhow, I've actually noticed that it helps me to write. A lot. I haven't had writer's block, I haven't had to delete huge chunks upon a reread, in fact I've been turning out (in my opinion, at least) professional, novel-quality stuff. Anyone else have a similar experience? I don't want to sound like I can't write without drinking or anything, I just feel like it really helps me out.
