It can also be work. It can even, on rare occasions, be remunerative.
Not much, but some.
Recently scored a few new venues in which to write I wanted to share.
First, after my several articles as the Portland Spirits Examiner for Examiner.com, they have now appointed me the National French Wine Examiner for same internet magazine.
My new "beat" covers...well, pretty much anything I want to write about regarding French wines!
That's a pretty big territory to cover, I think you'll admit. Shouldn't be boring--at least to me, anyway. Can't speak for the people that have to read what I scribble/type.
If you'd like to read the first couple of article you can go here.
And in future, you can go to the upper right side of this page and click on the link to the National French Wine Examiner.
The first article is regarding Pierre Lurton's announcement today featuring Yquem By The Glass at some fantastic French and Monte Carlo restaurants. Think of Yquem By The Glass at Pierre Gagnaire in Paris: if that doesn't sound exciting, then you're not very much of a gastronome!
I'm also in process of penning a lead article for a liquor magazine on bitters and bitter liqueurs. More about that anon.
