The wisdom of Jane Austen

February 6, 2018

"I have not wanted syllables where actions have spoken so plainly"

in Sense and Sensibility.


Might seem a strange thing to write, given that this is (or soon will be) a website about writing and where, without syllables, nothing would be communicated. But I have always been a fan of Jane Austen. She is the author of the women's bible and is someone who acted in a way that she could for her time and social position. Given that we are celebrating 100 years of women getting the vote in the UK, I can think of no better person than one of my literary heroines to celebrate another step in the right direction, and to kick start the new year with a new blog, my website, and hopefully a new career in full-time proofreading and editing. Jane Austen has long been valued in the UK - and elsewhere too I think - for her phrasing which is so elegantly put, and which leaves you feeling that you've been bolstered by her lively yet perceptive wit.


Being wise in what we say - how we say it and why we say it - is what I am (partly) about. I like to use words to convey the right meaning and to help get the right message across, be it an idea via a paper I am editing or a message in a social media post. Please do come back for more simple, wise and informative words!
