Bright Star and an excerpt from one of my books
I watched this movie, Bright Star, a couple of nights ago. It's the story of John Keats and his love, Fanny Brawne. John Keats died at the age of 25, so it is a rather sad movie, but sooooo romantic. It stayed with me for the next two days. I couldn't stop thinking about it. It was a really sweet movie, and also rated PG, very clean.
One of the sad things about the story is that John Keats never received much acclaim, and certainly not much, if any, money from his two books of poems published in his lifetime. If he had, he and Fanny could have married. As it was, he was too poor. But if you like romantic movies, I think you will love this. It's filled with beautiful images, and bits of poetry, of course.
Speaking of romance, I want to share that I'm going to be on Pepper Basham's blog on Tuesday, Feb 2nd. She's sharing a short excerpt from a book of mine--a kissing scene in honor of Valentine's Day. It's not from the book that's coming out in October (Yes, I have a book coming out in October! My first book is being published, but I can't reveal all the details just yet, but hopefully I will soon). Anyway, where was I? Oh, yes, Pepper has a snippet of one of my scenes on her blog this Tuesday. Click here to read it!
But not until Tuesday. :-)
