In December I started this blog in an attempt to stop drinking wine every evening and actually do some writing instead. Once the sun goes down, when I get the urge to crack open a bottle, instead I crack open my laptop and write. It's been going pretty well.
I didn't really know much about the Dryathlon until this year when the ad caught my attention - probably because I was sober when I saw it this time! I thought maybe some of you lovely dryathletes might find this idea helpful. Every evening using the twitter account @finisfunny I will be sending a tweet with the hashtag #wineoclockblues and will sit down to do some writing or some other creative thing for an hour or more and you can do the same. I promise it really does help to keep your mind off the booze when you focus on something creative. If any of you are interested I might start a dryathlon team, I know it's a bit late but I've learnt that it's better to do something late than not at all.
Even if this doesn't help you, I wish you all the best in your endeavours this January. I raise my cup of tea to you all.
