I forgot to post this before I went to bed last night. The story of my life. I am unsure I will keep this but here it is, mostly to answer the question – how did Mr. Collins die.
I intend to write another post about my thoughts for the premise for this story, and about the character of Mr. William Collins, Elizabeth’s first husband, which is really the driving force behind everything that happens. He surprised me, to be honest. But that is for another day…
Go to Letters Epilogue
I just posted the end of Letters. I do have an epilogue written, but I’m not really crazy about it like I once was. I’ll post it but it is debatable if it will stay in the final version. I do have a few loose threads to tie up and they are tied in this version. I will probably post it before I go to bet tomorrow night.
Until then, enjoy Mr. and Mrs. Darcy!
Go to Letters Part 40
This is the penultimate post before the end and the Epilogue. We’ll take it right up until the wedding day in this one. I did say they would marry quickly.
Go to Part 39
I should have posted this yesterday but I thought I had one less post to make than I do to meet my August 31st deadline. Darcy needs to tell his family his news.
Go to Part 38
I meant to post Part 37 last night but I fell asleep. Oh well. We are rapidly approaching the end of my story. I’m still shooting to finish by the 31st so you will be getting some rapid updates.
Go to Part 37
I decided not to make you wait very long for the next section. I think this may be the longest chunk I’ve posted. That alone should make you happy.
I’d love to hear your impressions once you’ve read it. If you haven’t commented before I’ll need to approve it before you can see it online, but the notifications seem to be working again so I should get to it pretty quickly.
Go to Part 36
We are getting very close now… Enjoy!
Go to Letters Part 35
My son starts his second band camp at Arizona State tomorrow. This is their 100th anniversary of the marching band so it should be an interesting season. To kick things off, how about a new section of Letters? Yes, I think that will work.
Our couple is in the middle of almost 2 months without seeing each other. Will Elizabeth be able to hold out with her vow of widowhood much longer? We are getting close to the answer!
Go to Part 34.
I’m not really happy with this next section and I expect it will change quite a bit with the edit. Anyway, here you go. We need to keep moving forward.
Go to Part 33
I decided I shouldn’t wait too long to add the next section. This contains some to the earliest sections that I wrote for this story. Originally it was most of chapter 2 – but then I decided I needed to go in a different direction in the unfolding of the story but I saved the text as both my backstory and for possible use later. When it was time for Elizabeth to give her history with Collins, it was already written. I just had to edit it to make it fit the moment.
I think this will help answer a lot of your questions on why Elizabeth has been so opposed to remarriage.
