"Write drunk; edit sober" - Ernest Hemingway
Haha I've never heard that quote before. I always write my coursework while drinking or drunk so there's something in it. It's much easier for me to write and less boring at my desk while drinking a half of vodka and coke. Am gonna do it tonight (cwork in thurs)

Supposedly it makes one more creative, but only up a point. I did a lot of coursework last year while slightly drunk as I found I focused a bit better and found it easier to convey my thoughts efficiently. By 'slightly drunk' I mean about a litre of 5-6% beer. Enough to feel it but not too much I can't actually work.
