    shy person and still sometimes fights those tendencies I highly recommend YEAR OF YES to anyone who wants to break the cycle of no and step outside of their comfort zone Writing at a Standing Desk Brilliant I used to think of writing at a standing desk as an oxymoron can t be done And didn t article after article talk about how despite how good for you standing desks are writing is best done sitting down Well I m happy to say that I was wrong I have gone from raising a skeptical eyebrow at the standing desk craze to full on convert Why do I LOVE writing at my standing desk It s energized my writing routine I feel physically mentally and emotionally vibrant as I stand at my desk and write I ve always thought of writing fiction as something akin to acting and somehow standing enables me to connect on a more physical level with what the characters are feeling and doing than when I m sitting slumped in my chair Yeah I tend to slump when sitting Which leads me to the next point My posture is better when I m standing and writing than when I m sitting and writing I am more focused when standing than I am when sitting I have more clarity about both big picture and details when I m standing than when I m sitting Standing helps me remember to do the power pose from that famous TED talk by Amy Cuddy And that s always great for my writing This is my ReadyDesk standing desk converter which sits on top of my regular desk It comes with two shelves that you can move around till you find the perfect height I also bought an extra shelf more Lady Susan finally makes it to the screen in Whit Stillman s Love and Friendship Can t wait to see what Whit Stillman does with this one I ve always thought Lady Susan would be really tough to adapt but if this trailer is any indication it s going to be deliciously wicked fun What I m Reading 11 22 63 by Stephen King I ve decided that the definition of unputdownable in the OED should now be 11 22 63 by Stephen King I have lost sleep and work time racing through yet savoring every word of this masterfully written time travel what if alternate reality tale of a man who travels back through a time warp rabbit hole in the back of a diner that lands him in 1958 where he must spend the next five years planning how to thwart the assassination of JFK On the way there is more of the past to tamper with survive and fall in love with especially because it is where he meets his soulmate But nothing is ever easy when it comes to changing the past no sir The past will do anything it can to stay put The obdurate past

    as comments when our Top Ten Signs of Addiction appeared as our guest post on the For Romance Readers blog Thanks all Keep them coming I m afraid I once got far too excited when standing outside The Red Lion in Lacock which stood in for the Meryton Assembly in P P 95 thinking Mr Darcy got out of his carriage right here If only I d thought it and not said it out loud Once my non AA friends had got over their laughter I seem to remember we had a lovely meal in the pub Not a Regency hero or heaving bosom to be seen though And then there was the time my long suffering hubby took me on a P P inspired tour to Derbyshire author Georgia Hill I d just love a time machine please preferably with Mr Darcy at the controls author Jenna Dawlish A time machine would be great with Colin Firth at the helm Lynn M On my Google favorites toolbar I have Jane A Only only Austen blogs are allowed in that folder for faster browsing Lynn M You never pulled an all nighter in college in order to finish homework but you did pull an all nighter to finish that long fabulous fanfic you were reading at the Derbyshire Writers Guild Ally You actually know which adaptations P P0 P P1 P P2 and P P3 refer to In addition you have the problem of constantly wanting to refer to the 1995 miniseries as P P2 to people WHO DO NOT KNOW THIS Ally each time I start Mansfield Park I truly hope and wish that Henry Crawford will turn into a good guy Beth Elliott I told my husband I wanted to go to the festival in Bath and he

    odd box of a mousetrap I d seen in the London museum and that s how it arrived in the story Another idea occurs to me regarding research According to my story s timeline the meeting between my protagonist and Jane Austen takes place on September 17 1813 I figured that if my protagonist was to run into Jane Austen in London it had to be on a day when I was fairly certain that JA was actually in London Even though I was writing a novel this little detail was important to me Ideally I wanted the meeting to take place during a gap in the letters for in my fictional universe I pictured Cassandra destroying a letter that not only may have talked too explicitly about the symptoms of Jane Austen s illness but which also mentioned the lunatic she ran into while picking up some packages from her favorite linen draper There is a week long gap in Jane Austen s correspondence to Cassandra Deirdre Le Faye indicates Letter s missing here between Letter 88 on Thursday 16 September 1813 from Henrietta Street London and Letter 89 written Thursday 23 Friday 24 September 1813 from Godmersham Letters Deirdre Le Faye I figured the earliest JA may have traveled from London to Godmersham was on Saturday September 18 1813 as the 9 16 1813 letter makes no mention of her traveling the next day There is also no letter from JA letting Cassandra know she arrived at Godmersham along with an account of her journey as was typical Therefore I agree that there must have been at least one missing letter All of this is of course conjecture and might fall apart in the hands of a bona fide historian Luckily for me I did after all write a work of fiction Another thought about research and historical detail Although I wanted there to be enough sensory detail in my novel to get the reader immersed in the story and setting I did not want this book to be weighed down by too much description In fact a judicious use of description is one of the things I admire about Jane Austen s writing Like certain spices in food it s my belief that a little goes a long way Question You also mention your research trip to England What did you do on the trip Answer In some ways I approached my research in England as I would a location scout for a film or maybe I m thinking of it this way because I come from a film background I was looking for environments in which I could picture my characters and I was searching as well for the accoutrements or props if you will of their daily lives My travels included the following In London I took fascinating walking tours offered by London Walks including tours of Jane Austen s London Old Marylebone and Old Mayfair I visited the City of London Museum Apsley House
