MFRW Authors this week are sharing their greatest accomplishments. Now, this is a hard topic!
In the Regency world of my books, an accomplished lady could speak French, host a perfect party, play the piano or maybe even the viola, draw and paint well, ride horses, run a household the size of a modern hotel, and be an expert at embroidery or some other similar needlework art.
Me? Not so much
I speak a little Spanish and German, I host family parties (generally less than perfectly), I can play the piano a little, I’m really good at painting…walls, I can drive a stick-shift, and I’m a pretty good shot with a pistol (I had a job carrying one of those for a while). I also do all the family bill-paying, and I sew and knit.
How does that measure up?
I have been greatly blessed in my life, but many of these blessings are the result of good fortune, persistence and making emergency u-turns when I was headed down the wrong paths. Gosh, I’ve made and still make a million mistakes. I feel greatly blessed but not much more accomplished than the next person.
Follow along and see what my fellow MFRW Authors have to say.
