If You Write, Don't Drink

A short story can be written on the bottle, but for a novel you need the mental speed that enables you to keep the whole pattern inside your head and ruthlessly sacrifice the sideshows. I would give anything if I hadn't written Part III of Tender is the Night entirely on the bottle.

F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1938
