DeFoe Manor

To my dearest Sarah,

You really must see DeFoe Manor, it is simply magnificent. I am still waiting for my belongings to be shipped from Derry. How fortunate that the mansion is fully furnished so that I can already begin living on the grounds. I am still in disbelief from the inheritance. As I have already told you I knew of Uncle Joseph, but I have not heard from him since I was a girl. To inherit such a manor is beyond my wildest imaginations. I do hope you can forgive me for moving to England on such short notice, but you must understand that there really is nothing for me in Derry anymore since Mother passed away last spring. Once I get everything worked and am finally settled in to DeFoe Manor, I shall send a formal invite to you. You must come. I do not know if I would ever be able to forgive you if you declined. Tomorrow I shall explore the grounds of the manor. The manor covers a large amount of land, I have no idea how I shall live here all by my lonesome.

 Please write soon. I do miss you so.

A little something.

I am going to try something. I have a fair amount of time between my classes so I am going to try and write in that time. However since I don't want to bring a laptop since my MacBook needs to be connected to a power line at all times or it just turns off, I decided that I will user iPod. Now there are probably iPod Word Processers but I figured if I did that, I would never share my work and it would just rot on my iPod. So I figured why not write on a blog? The story I am writing is goong to (hopefully) be a kind of ghost story, more accurately its a haunted house. I don't know how this will go since its my first time writing something of this nature. I'm going to attempt to mimic the style of Bram Stoker's Dracula and tell the story in the form of letters. We'll see how long that lasts. This is kind of an experiment for me, and as such things might change. I am far from a professional writer, but hopefully it will be of some entertainment. I won't promise a set update schedule, this is something I'm doing between classes, and once midterms start coming up, updates will be sporadic. Besides, anyone who reads my Let's Play knows I'm very unreliable at updating. Feel free to leave any comments and criticism.
