Just On the Horizon, by P. O. Dixon

Greetings! I’m back with more drabbles. Did I mention last time how much I enjoy these little creative exercises? I’m delighted to know so many of you enjoy them too.

But first, I have news to share about my current writing projects. In case you read and enjoyed A Night with Mr. Darcy to Remember, you’ll be glad to know its sequel is a top priority for 2022 publication. In fact, it’s available for pre-order at some online booksellers right now. This excludes Amazon pre-orders, but they’re coming soon. It’s titled After Last Night with Mr. Darcy, and here’s the working cover:

I’m also committed to releasing Crossed a Little in Love (my NaNoWriMo 2020 writing project) and Simply Beautiful (my NaNoWriMo 2021 writing project) during the first half of 2022. I’m far enough along on both novels (at least 50k words each) that I should have no problem sticking to this plan. Fingers crossed.

Now for another selection of drabbles:

While a certain unnamed couple usually inspires these 100-word stories, in the case of The Balcony, another dashing Jane Austen hero comes to mind. Can you guess who he is? I welcome your comments.

Reading The Balcony, I was reminded of a scene from “Sanditon”, the miniseries, where Charlotte and Sydney Parker argue on a balcony during a ball. So, I present Sydney as an option.

Thank you for sharing, always looking forward to your stories/books, I am at a disadvantage as I haven’t read all of JA’s stories (shame on me!!!)

I’m intrigued by who it could be in The balcony. I was hoping to be able to pickup on some clues to his identity but I have no idea.

Linda A. had a good point with Henry Tilney. I thought perhaps it could be Wentworth the first time he saw Anne. I loved these dabbles. Oh-My! Whew! They were so romantic. Thanks for sharing.

Or, could it be Henry Tilney?

Your drabbles are lovely little bites of delicate phrasing and ambience. Thank you!

Could your hero of The Balcony be Mr. Knightly?
