About a year ago I started updating a randomly selected chapter from my book. I thought, I'll just start with the plants that grow locally, to narrow it down! Well, just one chapter took over a month of work. Exhausted, and now busily working on the novelization of our science fiction comedy movie, The Emissary, this project remains on the back burner for now. But it is shame for this doc to sit on my desktop unread, I realized. It feels wrong to work really hard on a project and not share it, so here it is!
