Learning How to Operate

Learning how to operate a soul figures to take time ~ Timothy Leary

Learning how to do anything takes time. I have been actively pursuing writing projects for five years now. It wasn't until last year that I figured out how discipline myself to get my writing done in the morning when I'm absolute freshest and most creative.

In the last couple of months, I've started going into work earlier, so that means getting up and getting things done earlier. In the past, that has been difficult to do. But now that I know what it feels like to sell a manuscript, I know that to get to work earlier I have to get up earlier to keep things moving.

It takes time to learn how it all works, no matter what your dream journey. Working in the afternoons through the evenings for so long helped me develop the discipline I need. Now that discipline and learning is about getting up earlier. In the end, seeing my goal of published manuscripts outweighs the sleepiness and gets me out of bed now.

Have you made any changes to your routines or boundaries lately?


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?
