Welcome to The Writers’ Block by Austen Authors!
Austen Novel Read Along is the board for our ongoing discussion of a Jane Austen novel. Beginning with Lady Susan, new portions of the original text are posted every Wednesday. This is a Discussion board with comments welcome and encouraged! No registration is required to join the discussion.
Jane Austen’s Reading Salon is the board where we freely showcase our writing: short stories, excerpts, deleted scenes, poetry, and other assorted samples, both Austenesque and beyond Austen’s world. This is a “read-only” board. Read to your heart’s content and check back periodically for new posts.A A A
I must admit to not feeling the best today, so though I wish to comment on the read along passage, my answers will be short and not particularly deep and not even answers really. 🙂 I did enjoy this section of the text.
1. That is an interesting character connection between the Churchills and Frank. I had not thought of that and am delighted to be able to view things with this thought in mind. Not that I have had enough time to ponder and put my thoughts into words 🙂
2. My thought on that situation was — If this had been Lizzy and Mr. Collins who had gotten locked in that carriage together…alone, I wonder what Mrs. Bennet would do?
3. I think both are at fault in the situation. Both were looking at what they wished to accomplish and interpreting things through their wishes.
Sorry, I know my comments are not deep or profound or anything along that line, but all my poor brain can manage at the moment. 🙂
