The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Wishbone Pride & Prejudice
I am infatuated with the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. There, I said it. I am a huge fangirl of this imaginative, semi-interactive, multi-media story. Are you a fan? Have you seen any of the episodes yet? Presently, we are smack in the middle of the Pemberley arc. Lydia is about to do something idiotic just as ODG finally understands just how wrong she was about ODB. It is truly gripping stuff, and there are all the links you need to get started on it right here: Pleasant Diversions
Also, in preparation for the P&P 200 Challenge, I was looking around for the Pride & Prejudice episode of the children’s series Wishbone. Remember Wishbone? The adorable, literary-inclined Jack Russell Terrier would become embroiled in a plot from a classic in every episode. I had never watched the P&P episode, entitled “Furst Impressions”, but had heard about it for years. Anyways, after much searching, I found it! The entire episode has been broken into three parts on YouTube. You can watch it right here: Pleasant Diversions
Austenprose Pride & Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge 2013
2013 marks the 200th anniversary of my all-time favorite novel. That Pride & Prejudice is my favorite should come as no surprise to you, and it is very likely one of your favorites, too. This year, I’m participating at the “aficionada” level in the Austenprose Pride & Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge.
What does that mean? Find out here: P&P 200 Challenge
Happy Holidays to you!

I will be honest here. 2012 was a horribly rotten year in many ways. True, there were a lot of really cool things that happened, including my eldest son’s own marching band going to the Bands of America Grand National Championship Finals. But the bad definitely outweighed the good this year, sadly resulting in much less time for writing, editing & administering this site. 2013 holds a lot of promise though, so I ask that you don’t give up on me just yet! Even though I have not always been online, I have been doing my best to keep writing a little bit whenever possible. I’d like to thank you for reading, as always, because that is the reason I do this. Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah to everyone, and a wonderful new 2013, too!
Welcome to my plot-bunny garden!
Since I began my crazy writing journey in November of 2008 with NaNoWriMo, I’ve been terrorized by plot-bunnies! I know that bunnies, as a rule, seem to be all cute and cuddly. Plot-bunnies, however, are not! Mine demand attention and refuse to be silenced and as such, they need an outlet before they destroy the work I’m cultivating elsewhere. It’s very hard to focus on my WWII novel and what led to Pearl Harbor when you have bunnies hopping around whispering: ‘Now what if you were to take a break and write about this instead?’ My plot-bunny garden is like any other garden… sometimes things are in bloom and all is bright and beautiful and sometimes serious pruning and weeding is needed. Oftentimes the posts here are pre-Beta and, as such, can be raw. Grammatical errors, tense issues, awkward or trite sentances may occur. Like a gardener, I work on the seeds in my garden until they are ready to harvest. That said, I am proud of many of the things in my garden (some more than others) and thank you for taking the time to stop by and look. If you have any comments, whether they’re praise or censure, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks, and (hopefully) enjoy!
