Reply J "Joy" Dawn King (Post author) January 25, 2018 at 4:55 pm Thanks, Mom. I’ve already written the first scene in the next chapter and will write more today. Reply Glynis January 25, 2018 at 5:15 am Oh my goodness. I wonder if Elizabeth heard any of this? I really feel for the poor Colonel but he can’t possibly have Elizabeth, please don’t let her choose him over Darcy. If he had been thinking straight he really should have kissed her when he was holding her just then 🙂 Reply J "Joy" Dawn King (Post author) January 25, 2018 at 4:57 pm Oh, what a clever idea. However, that would have given Darcy unfair advantage because I cannot imagine him to be a sloppy kisser. Can you? Elizabeth and Darcy will end up together, never fear. The colonel? I have plans for the man. Reply Jennifer Leiker January 25, 2018 at 6:00 am This is wonderful!! Reply J "Joy" Dawn King (Post author) January 25, 2018 at 4:58 pm Thank you very much, Jennifer. I am enjoying writing these characters. Reply caroleincanada January 26, 2018 at 3:06 am So glad you are safe and sound in Ecuador with Jennifer and family…especially the grandchildren! Please thank Jennifer for getting you writing again! My stomach was cringing reading about Richard and the poor horse. I can well imagine Elizabeth’s horror. Then their encounter in the hallway…sparks indeed! But to torture us with Richard vying for Miss Elizabeth?! But that just may be what he needs to make him worthy of her! Now who do you have in mind for the Colonel? Can’t wait to find out!!! Reply caroleincanada January 26, 2018 at 3:12 am Darcy being the ‘he’…and worthy of her… Reply J "Joy" Dawn King (Post author) January 26, 2018 at 2:31 pm Please do not worry about typing errors. I’m posting chapters that, I fear, are full of them. Reply J "Joy" Dawn King (Post author) January 26, 2018 at 2:30 pm I will certainly let her know. She has always been the sweetest child. BUT, Jennifer becomes a Drill Sergeant when it comes to getting me focused on writing. Who knew our gentle girl could become such a taskmaster. I’m grateful. I agree with you, Carole. I believe a little competition will be very healthy for Mr. Darcy. As far as the Colonel goes, you will have to wait. I have two different ideas. We shall have to see how the story works out. It usually surprises even me in the end. Reply Patricia Edmisson January 26, 2018 at 3:12 pm Wow, I was not expecting a “contest” to win Elizabeth’s affections. This is getting better and better. I do feel for the Colonel. How much will he make Darcy suffer? Who will be for the Colonel? Reply J "Joy" Dawn King (Post author) January 26, 2018 at 5:15 pm Patricia, I feel for him too. He knows how to push Darcy’s buttons. The Colonel will fall for a worthy woman in the end. Reply Anji February 24, 2018 at 4:44 pm I’m on a major catchup with this one Joy. In fact, I’ve just read it all through right from the very beginning! This chapter is the first of the new ones for me. It’s one of the things I’m using to cheer myself up, as I’m currently in bed with flu, despite having had my flu jab late last year. Grrr! It’s all hanging together very nicely when read as a whole. I can’t imagine living at that sort of altitude, though I guess you must become acclimatised eventually. The only times I’ve been at any sort of altitude (a few days in Cameroon in the late 70s and a few days in Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon ten years ago) left me feeling decidedly out of puff! The highest mountain in the UK is less than half the height you’re living at (and yes, I have been up it – on our honeymoon, no less). Anyway, what a pity D&E couldn’t have had a quick (or even lengthy) kiss and been thoroughly compromised in the hallway! But then we wouldn’t get the burgeoning rivalry between Darcy and Richard, so I’m trusting where your Muse is taking us on this journey. It’s never failed us yet and I’m sure it won’t this time either. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
