Weekly Emma Drabble 1 - From the private journal of Emma Knightley

I feel as though I should welcome those who are beginning their journey into these small smatterings about my life. Well, my life, and those of my dear friends. Here I hope to record my doings, mundane and profound, but, of course, always fascinating. Naturally, since I am the one doing them!


"Yes, Mr. Knightley?"

"Are you self-aggrandizing again?"

"Oh, George, why would I do that, after your sternness the last time."

"Now I know you are. Using my name is your last resort."

"You love me anyway."

"Naturally, dear."
