Summer’s going fast!

Salt_Springs_2014_3I’m insanely busy, so my apologies for a quick, catch-up kind of post.

I haven’t had a great deal of time for writing, but I’m still doing some story brainstorming. Last weekend, I spent a day at Salt Springs State Park in PA with friends from church. I hiked up a waterfall (no pics of the waterfall as I am too klutzy to dare carry a camera or phone while doing something like that) and also walked along the creek. Later I spent some time working on ideas for another novella, this time a sequel to Lady Em’s Indiscretion, rounding out the trilogy.

Salt_Springs_2014_5I’ve also been working on another Big Project which I’ll tell you all about when the time gets closer.

Now I’m concentrating on getting my oldest ready to head off to college next week. So many emotions! I had a mini-meltdown, breaking into tears as we were leaving Bed, Bath & Beyond yesterday. But I’m excited too, and of course happy that my daughters have opportunities not available to ladies in the Regency. (Read more about education during the Regency in this article by Cheryl Bolen.)

A fan has suggested I write a story inspired by these experience, kind of “Yentl in the Regency”. I don’t know. Has that already been done? How’s everyone else spending the end of this summer?

    Jane Austen did that, with Pride and Prejudice. Yentl was a Jewish P&P. Too many authors are now writing Darcy spinoff fan fiction. You are better than them, Elena, so just make it original.

      I actually haven’t seen Yentl, so I don’t know about the P&P comparison, though it sounds interesting. I was thinking of the “chick in pants to get an education” story, though I’m not sure I have a fresh take on it anyway.
