Just a notice to anyone who might wonder why there’s been no posts for a while…
I’d been really busy finishing up some projects (10 Common Plants and American Ginseng & Companions). Now that those are done I’m taking a too-short but much anticipated vacation and break from the internet.
When I’m back online I have some fiction projects to work on and I’m already looking forward to that.
In addition to the ginseng and nature-blogging, I’m a fiction writer. Most of it is either influenced by my life out here or is actually set in the Ozarks.
Beginning when I return I’ll begin a serialized short story. I’ll post 100-200 words per day of a short story until it’s all posted. I’ll also begin working on pod-casting the same things.
It’s just one more way to put a few more eggs in the self-reliance basket. I haven’t tried selling fiction yet, other than simply posting a short story or two to Amazon. I’m not sure it’ll add much to the bottom line. But it’s something I enjoy and it’s been too long since I’ve immersed in the magical side of the Ozarks.
The first story up for serializing is Ozark Pixies. It’s scheduled to begin on August 14.
When I have anything posted at the Fantasy site, I’ll drop a link to it here. I hope you’ll join me sometimes!
