Dinner With The Dead

Jane Austen by Ben Sutherland (CC BY 2.0)  

If I could have dinner with someone from the past, who would it be? Interesting question. I have a lot of people I admire from the past. Poets, artists, musicians, but after thinking about it long and hard I think I would like to meet Jane Austen.

Why? Because I am a great fan of her novels. She is brilliant author. For someone who loves writing as much as me, she is a hero!

What would we eat? I think that I would have something like spaghetti or tortellini. They both seem like rather a grand meal to eat and they are so yummy. It just seems right!

Where would we eat it? At some grand famous restaurant. We would sit at a quiet table at the back and chat our way through dinner.

What would we do after dinner? Why chat some more of course. I would try and get all the writing tips I could. Why go to a movie or party when you can talk about writing?

What would be my most important question to ask Jane Austen? Where her ideas came from. What inspired her novels. I always wonder about where authors get their inspiration. It would be so interesting to find out what inspired every novel in the world.

What would I wear? I think I would wear a beautiful ball gown. Something pretty that isn't too hot. I would probably wear flat shoes as I hate heels.

Would anyone else be there? No! I wouldn't want anyone else there because they might change the subject from what I would like to talk about.

I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it!
