Welcome to The Writers’ Block by Austen Authors!

TheWritersBlockBadgeThe Writers’ Block Forum consists of two unique boards to enhance the Austen Authors website experience for our readers.

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 Dance with Mr. Darcy: A Pride and Prejudice Vagary
A Dance with Mr. Darcy takes place some five years after the elopement of Lydia Bennet with Mr. Wickham. There has been no second proposal, for Darcy has been seriously injured in a carriage accident as he returns to Hertfordshire after learning of Lady Catherine’s attack upon Elizabeth and has a lengthy convalescence. Before he can recover, Elizabeth has married another. Kismet or Fate or whatever name you wish to give it intervenes, and the two are thrown together outside of an inn across the Scottish border; yet, there are many obstacles to overcome before they can claim happiness.
