Each Day is a Wonder

What I know for sure is that every sunrise is like a new page, a chance to right ourselves and receive each day in all its glory. Each day is a wonder ~ Oprah Winfrey

Do you have your routines in place?  The best combat I have against avoiding working on your dream journey is to schedule it in your life. Once I started scheduling it, I knew I had that time available to work and gradually I became excited to work on writing in the mornings.

Now I use the word scheduling loosely.  For me, it simply means after I get up and workout, writing is the next agenda for my day.  I generally have a word count goal or an editing goal and then I'm off to the next portion of my day.

Sometimes, those, I do schedule tasks according to my morning schedule.  I work a job from 1 pm to 9 pm, so that's when I get most of my writing done.  With that work schedule, that also means I have to use that morning time for different appointments. When I have those appointments, I do schedule my week so that I accomplish everything I need to.

Do you schedule your work or just try to fit it in?


Is it possible for two Civil War veterans to find their place in the world on the Kansas Prairie?
When the War Between the States ended in 1865 many Americans emerged from the turmoil energized by their possibilities for the future. Frank Greerson and Gregory Young were no different. After battling southern rebels and preserving the Union, the two men set out to battle the Kansas Prairie and build a life together. Frank yearned for his own farm, away from his family—even at the risk of alienating them. Gregory, an only child, returned home to claim his inheritance to help finance their adventure out west.

Between the difficult work of establishing a farm on the unforgiving Kansas prairie, and the additional obstacles provided by the weather, Native Americans and wild animals, will their love and loyalty be enough to sustain them through the hardships?
