Nature Journal-Day 1

Wild Ozark Nature Journal

A new book I’m working on – the Wild Ozark Nature Journal. It’s going to take me 365 days to write/draw it, though. Today’s entry was the beginning. You can see them all and follow along at my new Wild Ozark Nature Journal site. Or click here to go to Day 2.

The first of a new discipline I’m working on- daily drawing and journaling.


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. Besides homesteading, growing plants & making crafty things and newsletters, I write books and stories. My rural fantasy fiction, written under the pen name, Ima Erthwitch, usually takes place in a much altered Ozarks.

    1. I’m not sure yet what I’ll do on the days I can’t go for my walk. Maybe just sit on the porch and draw something I can find there, if I need to be out of the weather or if the grandkids are over or something. But thanks! I’m pretty enthused by this project. It serves many purposes for me.
