I chose “A Well-Lettered Lady” as the title for this Blog because I think it brings to mind a woman who is classy, educated, and pleasant to know. I also hope to become “A Well-Lettered Lady” in the literal sense as I send letters and (hopefully) receive letters in return.
“A Well-Lettered Lady” also hearkens back to a time when many novels were attributed only to “A Lady” with few other identifying descriptors. While I have no objection to people knowing who I am, I do love cultivating an Air of Mystery (however transparent).
Things you should know about me: I am wordy, opinionated, friendly, clever (I think), tactful (I hope), and easily distracted. I am fond of Victoriana, libraries, paper, pens, wool, cats, correctly-used semicolons, stories, tools of all sorts (especially if they are shiny), fencing (rapier, not chain link), history, mysteries, puzzles, and games. I read, write, and knit a good deal, and I wear lace shawls with blue jeans. I am good at beginning projects, but awful at finishing them. I may be old enough to be your mother, but probably not.
Please leave me a note–I like notes.
