....that dim, quiet June Morning....
Today, June 29th, 2014 marks the 160th anniversary of Charlotte's Brontë's marriage to
Arthur Bell Nicholls . In a letter to her dear friend and school teacher, Miss Wooler, later that summer, written on August 22 1854 , Charlotte mentioned the walk they took down together to the church on her wedding day
My dear Miss Wooler......
.....I really seem to have had scarcely a spare moment since that dim quiet June Morning when you, E.Nussey and myself all walked down to Haworth Church---Not that I have been hurried or oppressed---but the fact is my times is not my own now ;Someone else wants a good portion of it ......
I have thought for awhile of doing a drawing of Charlotte , Miss Ellen and Miss Wooler walking down the lane to the church.
Quite a moment indeed ....and a journey. It was well Miss Wooler was there, as she had to give Charlotte away. I'm sure she did it admirably
Speaking of anniversaries, the 2 anniversary of my Nicholas and Alexis painting will be in a month ......and I actually think I'll finish around that time! It's been an adventure
My Brontë novel goes on. Much have been written , much is left to write . It's interesting how a scene I thought was finished, gains a new direction because of something I wrote in another section later ...a link is formed between and I add it in.
I looked around the web for novel organizational tips etc. and you know what? No software or advice can take the place of work lol... the best tip is : write , type in , write... just keep pluging away . I find some of the on line stuff takes one away from writing...and the writing is always the most important thing .
Okay! Back to work!
Next post should be my painting of Nicholas and Alexis 1916!
