Hemmingway once said to "Write drunk. Edit sober." It's so true. The only people that tell the truth are drunk people or children. And since kids can't be best selling authors, go with being drunk. Being drunk causes the world around you to change and that's exactly what a book is to do to someone. A book is supposed to alter our reality, change our perception, and help us realize a forgotten truth. I'm not condoning underage drinking, or excessive drinking, or being an alcoholic. I'm just saying- If you want to be a great author it might help to get drunk at first and see what happens. See what you get to work with from your subconscious. That's where all the great mysterious lie.

Reading grants me an escape button to this alternate world and enter a realm where I can visualize the climax of the story, as I find myself hard to place that bookmark in the book and close it which in turn closes my alternate world. Reading allows me to live in a different society where," The people who govern the Brave New World may not be sane: but they are not madmen, and their aim is not anarchy but social stability"-Aldous Huxley.

Most everyone enjoys reading, but do you enjoy it a little too much? Here's a sign you're addicted to reading--or perhaps just addicted to books in general. I LOVE the Arthur picture. "Having fun isn't hard when you've got a library card." And yes, I sang that when I got my first library card. Not going to lie. And I'm not ashamed.
