Thanks to everyone for your wonderful comments on my outtakes that I posted here and at Austen Variations last week. I also appreciate those who took the time to tell me how much they’ve enjoyed the book. I certainly understand Jane Austen’s words when she called Pride and Prejudice “my own darling child.”
We pour a plot from our hearts onto paper (or in my case a Word document), spend a lot of time pouring over word choices and phrasing, edit, edit, edit, proofread, proofread, proofread, proofread, and then put it out there for others to read, all the while hoping everyone likes it (which isn’t logical, but we’re optimistic!). It’s putting a piece of myself out there for others to see. I’m not the most outgoing person, so it’s daunting at times.
So, again, to those who have left messages or reviews about how much you liked Particular Intentions, thank you! I look forward to hearing more from everyone as people have the time to read it.
For those who have enjoyed Lydia’s experience at the Netherfield Ball, I have a post at http://babblingsofabookworm.blogspot.co.uk with another tale of Lydia and Mr. Bennet!
