All the mistakes I ever made were when I wanted to say "no" and said "yes" ~ Moss Hart

For about a year and a half, I've been very disciplined with my exercise and writing routines in the morning. This has included setting boundaries when I didn't have to be to work until 1 pm and not writing all morning long.

I've changed schedules lately and maintaining the routines and boundaries has been important. I have to get myself up earlier now to get the writing done. If I don't get the writing done in the morning, I am way too tired to write fiction at night.

I also have to set boundaries with the amount of television I watch at night. What has been working for me is about an hour and a half of social media/marketing/etc and then two hours of television. Sometimes this has been something showing, most of the time it is DVR'd programming.

What boundaries have you set for yourself 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?
