I am a regular contributor to Mixology magazine, based in Berlin, and for this magazine I write these insanely long stories usually about a single cocktail.
I've written 2000 words about eggnog, 2500 on the Blood and Sand, and 4000 words on the Mai Tai.
All of it gets translated into German so when I see the print version I can't read it but I like to look at the pictures.
One picture that I particularly enjoyed seeing was this cover illustration for my eggnog story.
I don't know if I've ever had the cover image before, so that's pretty awesome. (Update: Realized I've had it twice before- sweet!)
I shall now use this ego boost to get me through my next story, which is 2500 words on the Caipirinha, due tomorrow.
