January 2023 Writing Challenge Update

So here we go! This month, I’m going to start with my favorite topic to write about: HERBS! 

As you can see, I have five books in this category, more than the other WIP lists. My plan is to start the year out with these, work the entire month on them, and come back later in the year to work some more on them. Yippee!!

The yet untitled Herb book #4 in the Exploring Traditional Herbal Remedies In Mexico series is in the writing stage. I have about ten more herbs to research and write about.

The Mexican Wellness Garden book is mostly in draft form. I’d like to have that out by the Spring Equinox. 

The Spanish version of  The Mexican Apothecary: Traditional Cold and Flu Herbal Remedies is formatted and translated. It’s in the proofreading stage. 

The Women’s Health Apothecary is still in the writing stage. I have no idea how long that’s going to take me. The more remedies I research, the more herbs I find to research. I love it!

And finally, the herb coloring book is coming along. I haven’t decided exactly which herbs to include, but all the drawings are by my talented artist friend Claudia Guzes

Each morning, starting today, I will complete a lesson from Leonie Dawson’s 40 Days to a Finished Book course. 

I also thought I’d use this Herbal Intention worksheet from Herbal Academy to help keep my focus. I’ve filled in my intentions for January, and we’ll see how I do. If you’d like your own worksheet, you can download it free here. 

On February 1, I’ll update my progress and talk about my plans for February. 

Here I go!!!!
