Thursday Three Hundred– Hidden Hearts

Last month, I started an on-going story for Thursday Three Hundred. I was inspired by Scott's Grotto in Ware, Hertfordshire and noticed that Pride and Prejudice is the only story where the characters have no day trips planned. In the last post, Darcy accidentally accosted Elizabeth's person while attempting to hide from the shrill voices of … Continue reading Thursday Three Hundred– Hidden Hearts

Thursday Three Hundred– Hidden Hearts

I'm going to try something new on the blog. I'm going to do a continuing story for Thursday Three Hundred. Each post will be at least 300 words.

I could have written from a few other locations in the book, but chose the scene where Harriet Smith acknowledges that she loves Mr. Knightley--and believes he loves her in return.

Thursday Three Hundred- The Balm of Kellynch Hall

My song for Music Monday this week was Mercy by Brett Young. For the first time, I considered how cruel a woman could be during a break-up. Naturally, it made me consider how kind Anne Elliot had been--or tried to be. What follows is about one thousand words of torturing Captain Wentworth. The Balm of … Continue reading Thursday Three Hundred- The Balm of Kellynch Hall
