Quotes: Write Drunk; Edit Sober (Remix)

“Write drunk; edit sober.” -Earnest Hemingway

“Write drunk — drunken with emotion. Whether in love or pain; hatred or joy, write intoxicated and completely wasted in the moment.

Edit sober — when all the winds have calmed, and when your eyes are cleared from the poison of life. Clean it up and make your pain presentable.” -Brittany Rose (elaborating on Hemingway)

This quote describes how I approach writing poetry.
