I almost forgot to write my journal entry for today. I have been super busy. I decided what my next project was going to be, and I’ve been at it all day long. I have decided that my next book is going to be The Herbal Correspondences Handbook, and working on that is now my primary focus.
I got a fair amount done on it today. I shared my progress on FaceBook: Pages: 250 – Words: 12,393 – Characters (no spaces): 69,074 – Lines: 2,596. I think that’s pretty good. I could have worked faster and done more, but I’m also trying to help some friends online, do other stuff, and I was battling with Jynx trying to take over my lap most of the day. I love her, but she can be a real pain sometimes. I’m still pretty happy with my progress though.
What I’m doing right now is the first step, which is taking all my years of research from documents on my computer and putting all of it into a book template. After that I need to clean up all of those entries. Then I need to do research to try to fill in the information that I was never able to find before. It’s going to be a very detailed and useful book when it’s done. I’ve never done a reference book before, so I’m really hoping that this is pretty killer when it’s done.
Well, I need to go think about dinner and other stuff. My blog posts will likely be short updates for a while while I’m focusing on the book, but I won’t let it go more than a few days without at least saying something.
Wish me luck!
