A victorian weekend by elina on 30 November 2008 8:20pm
 
My friend and I spent the weekend watching period drama. On Saturday we watched Pride and Prejudice (1995). Oh, how I just love Mr Darcy. What a gentleman! And Austen's characters are wonderful.
Today (Sunday) we watched Cranford (2007). I cried during the last episode, so sad. The series was very beautiful, and I found a new favourite song, "Loch Lomond".

I also got this great idea for a period drama, inspired by these two series. Maybe one day I find time to write it and not just plan forever.

Elina, as a writer, I will lean on you to get to work! LOL! How is that for a push? Or to quote a shirt New Jersey Romance Writers had, "Finish the Damn Book!"

Elina, I recently watched the BBC series of Pride and Prejudice too! It's fantastic, isn't it? If you're an Austen fan, you might enjoy the mini-series "Lost in Austen", which is a reworking of the P & P story. Lots of fun, and quite cheeky in parts!

Books are never finished. They're abandoned. (I don't remember who said that.)

A Victorian weekend ? I thought this was a post about Missy and kazzzz out on the razzle.
Oh, I do like a good costume drama.
 
Re: A victorian weekend by Miss-M on 30 November 2008 10:29pm
 
Yes, I thought Kazzzz had created a post about her weekend hijinks!

JTM, is razzle another word for booze? If so, I am highly offended.
 
Re: A victorian weekend by johnnythemonkey on 30 November 2008 10:34pm
 
I does indeed mean that Missy in my local vernacular. I'm glad you did'nt ' do a bIG ' and Google it. Apparently Razzle is a soft porn magazine.

The alternative defintion no doubt applies to your weekend, JTM?
 
Re: A victorian weekend by johnnythemonkey on 30 November 2008 10:40pm
 
I've never looked at soft porn in my life. I prefer the real naughty stuff.
Joking !!

"Lost in Austen"? Have to find that one. My friend loves Austen, I just love period drama and that era particular. But yes, P&P is wonderful. I'm determined to find my own Mr Darcy, though it may be a bit difficult... :) I have to move to Britain first.

Mike, I have started to write so many scripts/plays/stories that I don't think my old computer could stand any more! During my short life I have managed to finish only one, which I can't read anymore, because it is terrible! Maybe if I plan it very much it will start write itself :) Thanks for the push!
