writing about a Queen

we're writing historical one-act plays in my creative writing class. i wasn't really keen on taking this class (but of course it was required!). but when prof hughes brought the historical play i knew immediately that i wanted to write about my new favorite time period--France under the reign of Louis XVI. Why? Because I'm in love with this place:



while in France this summer we visited Versailles. Ah--I love it! It's so beautiful and peaceful. I find myself picking things up at the library about France's history and culture because of this place. And after finding Paris to be, well, less then I expected, Versailles quickly became my favorite stop in France.

My play is going to revolve around France's last queen: Marie Antoinette


I've read Fraser's biography on the queen, and I've picked up some more books on the palace of Versailles and the French Revolution. I own the movie about Marie Antoinette, just haven't had the time to watch it. Maybe tomorrow (my day off!)

bonjour!

my new blog!
I plan on actually keeping up with this one...I posted about two to three times a week at my old one but as I'm getting ready to move with my life (you know, graduating, getting married, moving into my first home) I really want to keep a record of what I'm doing and keep in touch with those I love.

Expect to read about
-my wedding
-Jordan
-my family and friends
-my love for all crafty type things (scrapbooking, knitting, etc.)
-grad schools
-The Office
-silly sort of things I like to do with my friends
-my love for Europe
-favorite movies and books
-whatever is on my mind

Much love to my reader ♥
Throw me a comment if you're there.
