I'm speaking on a panel next month at the annual literary festival of the South Asian Women's Creative Collective. The topic is "Supporting Your Habit: Making a Writing Life." Ha ha! Now I'll be damned if I know much about that as a perpetually broke music journalist, but I'll do my best. The best tip I can give to any any fellow writers, artists, and musicians out there--and I'm being totally serious here--is to learn how to cook. No joke! If you can cook, you can live on almost nothing and live well. My other tip is to develop the skill of being able to pick out good and cheap wine. Best advice I ever got from a Gang of Four song.

wine does not help you write. tea helps, though. to get into a writing groove on this blog, i generally brew a pot of tea first.
matos 100% OTM.

Does wine help you write? Unfortunately i could never be a writer because I usually have 3 voices arguing different POVs in my head, which doesn't translate into linear sentences :(

Another piece of advice for New Yorkers: don't be afraid to leave your neighborhood to shop. You will save money.

I got a bottle of Beujolais for 7.99 the other day in Athens, GA. That's quite good now innit? Good point about being able how to cook though.
