With a departing roar

[Image of a departing storm] With a departing roar the storm rolled off to the east. Clear skies between broken clouds filled the southwestern wake.

Nature is my muse.

I’ve been working hard on my novel, trying to get the first draft finished by the end of March. I want to be submitting it by the end of summer.

The rain last night and the way the storm departed this morning as if grumbling and slamming doors behind it gave me an idea for a scene I could include in the chapter I’m currently writing. So I woke with the story on my mind.

If you’d like to keep up with the novel progress, you can do that at my fiction site. I have the first seven chapters posted for beta readers.  You’ll need a password to enter that page, but not to worry. It’s given in the page title.


About Wild Ozark
Wild Ozark is a nature farm. Mostly we grow rocks. I use those rocks and some of the herbs to make earth pigments and watercolor paints. We also grow native clay that I use for making my Fairy Swing Mushrooms. And then there are the trees. We grow lots of trees. My husband uses some for his woodworking and some for our Burnt Kettle Shagbark Hickory Syrup, but for the most part they stand around creating good air, shade, & habitat for the ginseng nursery.

About the voice behind this blog, Madison Woods
I'm a creative old soul living way off the beaten path with my husband in the wild Ozark Mountains. You can find my art on display and for sale at the Kingston Square Arts shop in Kingston, Arkansas. It's a tiny little town and a bit off the path to anywhere at all, but a wonderful ride out to a most beautiful part of our state. Besides homesteading, growing plants & making arts & crafty things, I write books and stories. My rural fantasy fiction, written under the pen name, Ima Erthwitch, usually takes place in a much altered Ozarks.
