On a Lighter Note...

This is the first in a series of some illustrations I found in early 20th century editions of Emma and Mansfield Park. This lovely picture is by C.E. and H.M. Brock from Emma. The caption reads:

"Most Beloved Emma - tell me at once, say 'No' if it is to be said."

Don't you adore Knightley?

Okay, so this has nothing at all to do with your post... but answers the question you posed on Hilltrash about where, ultimately, I'd like to publish. My list and your list are pretty much the same. The idea of publishing in the New Yorker makes my stomach hurt, and I expect would earn me a stern phonecall from at least one relative who wanted to be certain I wasn't "getting above my raising." I wish Glimmertrain would start including Creative Nonfiction, but am willing to call something "fiction" when I send it to them, even if it is not. Luckily, the sin of that is much less than the sin of calling fiction, non.
