Celebrating Women: Jane Austen

In my previous post, I said that I'm celebrating International Women's Day by posting journals with quotes by women writers in my Etsy shop. Jane Austen is one of my favourite writers, so I couldn't celebrate women writers without including her. Here is the quote:

"I begin already to weigh my words & sentences more than I did, & am looking about for a sentiment, an illustration, or a metaphor in every corner of the room."
~Jane Austen

If you'd like to learn more about Jane Austen, you might want to check out Park Honan's book Jane Austen: Her Life. It's a very interesting read.
