Maria Elisabeth over at Miss Georgiana Darcy is hosting a week-long Sense and Sensibility event from November 6-12. I'm extremely excited about this--click on either of these banners to go to her blog and participate! (I couldn't decide which picture I liked better, so I took two.)here. I'm so excited about this!
My posts may be few and far between this month. I have quite a few in draft, and I may just post those if occasion permits. We shall see. Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo? Are you brave enough to post some of your novel on your blog? I will if you will!
Also, the results are in from the Caption Contest poll. Seven people said they would definitely participate in a monthly caption contest, three people said they might, and three people had never heard of a caption contest.
Survey says: we're gonna have a monthly caption contest here on Yet Another Period Drama Blog. I should now explain what a caption contest is, for those of you who don't know. If you DO already know, either skip this or just bear with me. I first heard about caption contest through Elise's lovely blog, Ribbons of Light (see this post). My sister Anne loved the idea and soon picked it up for her blog, and I've enjoyed participating in her contests. So I thought it would be fun to have one on my blog.
The idea is simple. I post a funny picture from a movie or TV miniseries, and it's up to you to invent a clever, witty, hilarious caption for it. Post your caption in a comment (you have one week to do so) and then we'll vote on the captions and choose the best one. I'll make a little button for the winner to put on her blog. Elise did this contest weekly, and Anne holds it every other week, but that's too frequent for me. So I'll be holding a caption contest monthly.
And we'll begin now, with the November picture.... (from Sense and Sensibility 1995, as is appropriate)
