For those who don’t know, I wrote the Anne de Bourgh Trilogy a long, long time ago. And since I now post my new stories as PDF’s, I have never had time to convert the old ones. Well, today, I worked on the third installment: Anne de Bourgh’s Wedding. It’s the shortest of the three and it was therefore very easy to convert quickly.
The first story: Anne de Bourgh’s Diary & the second story: Anne de Bourgh’s Guide to Life (notice the title change) will take a lot longer. They are both swimming in type-o’s and inconsistencies and I would never convert them in the condition that they are currently in. They also require a good deal of rewriting (rewriting which I have been working on for over five years).
I am still surprised after all these years that I actually wrote these stories. I was much less cautious back in those days and they more or less flew off my fingertips. And now that I’m working on For the Love of Jane, I keep getting blocked. I wonder why that is? Also, it seemed that I actually had a sense of humor back then. I originally wrote the stories for my own amusement, but others seemed to like them as well.
I keep saying I’m going to rewrite the entire thing as one long novel and try to sell it, but I haven’t got the time or the energy. One day when I stop changing jobs and have more time to myself… Yeah, I don’t believe that either.
