It's a euphemism for what I do to fuel my writing. I like to drink and write. I don't get plastered to where I can't write a coherent thought, but I have between 3-6 drinks as I write. I think it makes me more honest. I don't want any sugar coating in my writing, and I'm at my most honest when I'm drinking. Not that I can't be honest sober, it's just easier when I've had a few. I like to think it bridges the gap between when inspiration hits me and getting it on the page the way I want it to sound. Maybe that's lame and an excuse, but it's part of my process and it gets me to the most creative places and the most honest. Anyone else? Or maybe you got something else that lets the writing spill out. What gets you into that zone?
