Challenge 8 - INSPIRATIONAL PEOPLE

This week our theme is INSPIRATIONAL PEOPLE and my choice is Jane Austen who wrote stories of strong heroines in a time when women had little or no voice. We can't wait to see who your inspirational people are. They don't have to be famous - just someone who has made a difference in your life.

  2. Your piece is exquisite, Marie. I know Jane Austen is one of your favorites, and you have certainly "done her proud"! My entry is on my blog, and it has a story (as usual).

  29. Wow! This WAS inspirational. And difficult. Looking around today's world, it's sometimes difficult to find inspirational people, i.e. people who encourage me, people who I want to be like 'when I grow up'.
    So I fell back on an old favorite who I discovered in my youth.
    Here is The Last of the Tudors
    Thank you, muses, for a very good challenge.

  34. For some reason I can never seem to post on this sit, I'm not sure why... Here's giving it another shot, in the hopes that whining about it makes it work.

    Here's my Entry:
