AtoZ Challenge - Theme Reveal!!

No surprise, I started a book over a year ago, no not that one, another one. But I stopped working on it to work on my novel. That other book was nonfiction and it was a guide to herbalism. But to be honest, I don't have near the knowledge I wish I had and although I have gathered notes and research for more than a decade, it is a project that will take a lot more time than I have right now.


But now I have the perfect way to take the knowledge I already have, and filter it through my Science Fiction brain. So my theme for the AtoZ Challenge 2021 is:

HERBS IN SPACE:  Which plants to take on your generation ship across the galaxy.

To be honest, most of us are aliens on our own planet. We do not know how and why to use the plants that grow all around us, and this is really useful wisdom to have. We have long forgotten the connection to our home world and are adrift in our virtual worlds. Time to learn which plants would be valuable to keep with us on our journeys.

Check out a new herb each day (except Sunday) for the month of April when I take you from AtoZ.

  4. Bookmarked! This is my favorite theme so far :) I don't know as much about herbs as I should either, but my grandmother does. And I like the science fiction spin!

  11. Cool topic. I read a nonfiction book a last year that was about the science in science fiction but I don't think it touched on plants. I'm going to attempt to microblog about books on our Instagram channel this year.
