New post series "to be a heroine..."

I mentioned, a little while ago, about about a Jane Austen related series of posts I had planned, which I now have the time to tell you about - Yay! These posts will be known as the "to be a heroine" series. I will be posting the first in the series in the next day or so but before I do that I wanted to give you a little insight into the series.

"But when a young lady is to be a heroine, the perverseness of forty surrounding families cannot prevent her. Something must and will happen to throw a hero in her way"
Ever since I read my first Austen novel I have always imagined what it would be like to be one of her heroines. How great would it be to be Elizabeth Bennet or Catherine Morland!? I even at times find myself in some way imitating one of my favourite characters, perhaps even without realising it. Lately I have found myself at times thinking a lot about Jane's heroines and who they are, what does it takes to be a heroine and what are the things we can learn from them. But in looking at this I have realised there are alot of mistakes these famous heroines made which we can learn from too.

So that's why I have decided to make up these series of posts (which I plan to post up on a 1 to 2 week basis). I hope you will enjoy them :)
