Perseverance is falling nineteen times and succeeding the twentieth ~ Julie Andrews

I think nearly everyone had doubted themselves along their dream journey. Nearly everyone I talked to has shared an example of a time when they wanted to give up. After just one more try, they shared with me a turnaround in their journey that led to a realization of their goals.

For me, sometimes perseverance has mean to attack the goal from another path. Sometimes when I'm writing, I struggle with a section. In the past, I have jumped to a different section of the story and worked on that and then was inspired to bridge the two sections. My noting and brainstorming process has helped me with that as well.

One of the best methods for me to persevere is remembering my successes in the past. I've published one novel and the second will be released in December. Remembering that keeps me going and helps me work through my third manuscript.

What helps you persevere on a day to day basis?


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?
