I have a PRIDE AND PREJUDICE obsession!

Some of my Christmas haul.

Some of my 2014 Christmas haul.  See a pattern?

“How many different versions of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE do you need?” asked my husband.

As many as I can get seems to be the honest answer.

Ironically, I’ve never read the actual book.

However, I’ve seen the WISHBONE version.  I’ve seen the black and white movie and the Keira Knightley one too.  I’ve seen both the BBC mini-series (one 1970’s and the other starring Colin Firth). I watched and own BRIDE AND PREJUDICE, which is a modern Bollywood retelling.  I’ve read the Marvel graphic novel and the graphic novel version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES.  I am a huge fan of the new media version, THE LIZZIE BENNET DIARIES and have watched the 100 episode series and read the accompanying book.

But, I know there’s still more “other” tellings out there.  Recently, I added the manga version to my Amazon wishlist.  And I have plans to see PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES the movie when ever it comes out.  Which brings me to a very important question…

Do you have a PRIDE AND PREJUDICE recommendation for me?

Maybe once I’m done with all the other stuff, then I’ll got actually read the original book.

#WIPpet Wednesday: The Charge?

Mini Update
So. Many. Snow. Days. It all helped me realize that my ideal of writing 2,000 words everyday was nothing more than an ideal.  While everyone else is home, scheduled or not, I cannot do 2,000 but I can comfortably manage 1,000.  We’ll save 2,000 for the days everything goes as planned and they are all at work/school.  Since snow days, kids getting sick, and so on aren’t planned, I can only say how much I’m supposed to write after I’ve written for a week.  So, it’s always going to be a surprise!

WIPpetWedWhat’s WIPpet Wednesday?
Wednesday is for the day of the week I (and others) share a WIPpet.  The word WIPpet is the joining of the word snippet with the acronym WIP, which stands for Work In Progress.  Using the date to conjure up a math formula, WIPpeteers (the group of people that share WIPpets) figure out how much to share.

My WIPpet Math
The date is 2/25/15.  First, we’ll ta the first and last numbers of the date and make 5 – 2 for page 3.  Then we’ll take the day and make 2 + 5 = 7 paragraphs.  As for that 1?  We’ll put it in our pocket for another day.

What’s My WIPpet?
Again I share from ALCHEMY, my cozy mystery fantasy.

Remember they pounded at Ana’s door to get her attention.  Now they finally get to the point as to why they were knocking in the first place.  (Story is narrated by Ana.)

This Week’s WIPpet
So, I clarified. “I shake my head because I do not understand. I cannot give what I do not know about,” I said.

“The carver fruit. Give it back,” said the guard. His hand was still out and his fingers now wiggled.

“I didn’t buy any carver fruit,” I said.

“I know you didn’t buy, stupid girl. You stole it,” said Luga. She pointed to a cart that was parked next to mine. It was a mix of harvested vegetables and fruit. Next to it was a worn young man with a scared look on his face.

“From there?” I asked, nodding my head in the direction she pointed.

“Yes,” hissed Luga.

“Without leaving my wagon?” I asked.
