Embellishing, Then and Now

"Expect a most agreeable letter, for not being overburdened with subject (having nothing at all to say), there shall be no check to my genius from beginning to end." -Jane Austen

Sometimes the less content we have to deliver, the better. This is in keeping with that saying often attributed to Mark Twain: "Never let the facts get in the way of a good story."

I quite love Jane's quote. She and I were, after all, contemporaries. I can prove this by the aged quality of my photograph, above.

Kidding. But please enjoy playing with this photo converter, which transforms your photos into ancient-looking relics. A different kind of embellishing.

In the meantime, when writing fiction, always put story first, facts second.
