Music Monday: Brian Crain – Pastel Garden

While writing, I often have a YouTube Music to Write By playlist that will repeat over and over in the background through my headset. Sometimes, like this week, I search out new instrumental music to add to the list.  Today’s video has found its way onto my list.  I enjoy Brian Crain’s music, and this video…well, it has distracted me from writing with its prettiness, so, of course, I had to share it with you.  Enjoy!

So what was I writing this week while this song was playing? A couple of confrontations and this one important realization.

From Her Father’s Choice (my current work in rough progress 🙂 ):

Elizabeth settled into the seat and attempted to listen to the conversation around her, but her mind kept wandering back to the conversation with Miss Ivison and Miss Pearce. She had felt a need to defend herself, but it was not what truly inspired her to speak as she had. What was it about Mr. Darcy that made her feel a need to see that he was well and that his name was not harmed?

“Oh!” Her hand flew to her mouth and her eyes grew wide as understanding dawned on her.

“Are you well?” asked Lady Sophia.

Elizabeth smiled brightly. “I am well. I was merely woolgathering.” She now saw her dislike for those two women and Miss Bingley for what it was. Mr. Darcy had touched her heart, and she was jealous.

Mary looked at her doubtfully. “Are you certain you are well, Lizzy?”

Elizabeth nodded. “I am well. Very, very well.” And, she added to herself, quite possibly in love.

Leenie Brown fell in love with Jane Austen's works when she first read Sense and Sensibility followed immediately by Pride and Prejudice in her early teens. As the second of five daughters and an avid reader, she has always loved to see where her imagination takes her and to play with and write about the characters she meets along the way. In 2013, these two loves collided when she stumbled upon the world of Jane Austen Fan Fiction. A year later, in 2014, she began writing her own Austen-inspired stories and began publishing them in 2015. Leenie lives in Nova Scotia, Canada with her two teenage boys and her very own Mr. Brown (a wonderful mix of all the best of Darcy, Bingley and Edmund with healthy dose of the teasing Mr. Tillney and just a dash of the scolding Mr. Knightley).
