Being able to travel to places where the character in a book may have lived enables the writer to more accurately word paint. Traveling to other places helps open our eyes and ears to the way others see the world and broadens our own perspective.
I so agree with #6 and #8!
Congratulations on the Jane Austen anthology!
Have a wonderful week.
Thanks Pat. You are so right about traveling to places i’ve read about and seeing the real thing! Awesome! a joy i carry with me to make me smile when i cannot go.
What is a left hander mug? It’s a great list. I love your idea for the anthology.
Thanks.I couldn’t find where an Austen anthology had ever been done and there is so much passion surrounding her. Her name/or reference appears in the most unlikely places. A left-handed mug means that when i pick up the mug to drink with my right hand, the image cannot be seen by me.
Especially #5! I know writers wrote before computers but… ayiiee! How much more labor-intensive! Not to mention the lack of an internet (where the knowledge of mankind (both real and imagined) is but a keystroke away.
Have a good week.
You got it, exactly!
#6! Such a horrific act. And #8. Seriously, how hard is it?
I would love to travel more.
I adore Austen anthologies, like Elizabeth: Obstinate, Headstrong Girl, Yuletide; The Darcy Monologues, Rational Creatures, Dangerous to Know: Austen’s Rakes & Rogues
