Jane Austen in August 2017
Day 2 of our Celebration of Jane #AusteninAugustRBR
And we’ve only just begun…
Today is an intro to a new feature for 2017 ~
Austen in August on Instagram
[+ twitter – pinterest – fb – etc]
Adam has invited me to share the daily Jane Austen prompts I have created to inspire those participants who do enjoy or who might enjoy the creativity of book photography. You may be joining us as an instagrammer, or may already be a #janeausten #bookstagrammer joining us. Each of you are most welcome to participate at your level of interest. Cheerleaders are definitely valued!
The #Bookstagram Reading Challenge follows as listed. Participants post a photo for the listed prompt, tag it @faith.hope.cherrytea as host, and hashtag it #JAusteninAugust – #AusteninAugustRBR so everyone can find and follow the new photos of JA related prompts.
Choose the prompts that inspire you. Take your photos anytime, then post your bookstagrams corresponding to the day of the prompts you’ve chosen. [Or use a scheduling service such as Later.com to post for you] I’ve found it a creative focus that increases enjoyment of my books on a new level. This month, it’s our Jane Austen collections.
This also works for those who prefer to post photos to twitter, pinterest or fb. Be sure to identify them with the same #hashtags as above. Share your love and spread the word for Jane Austen in August.
Are you ready? Let’s Party! . . .

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
