    @wisdomofprose Yes!  I love Hugo so much!!!  It’s one of our family’s favorite movies.  What are some of your other favorite movies? (if you can choose :))

    @eden-anderson The Book Thief is such a good book – yes, I would highly encourage you to read it, although there is a bit of problem with language.
    I’m going to check those books out at the library.  They sound really neat 🙂

      Dear Emily, please forgive me for not answering! February, March, and April have been crazy months for us!

      Gee, hard question! I think I would say these are probably my very favorites: The Book Theif, Hugo, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Life is Beautiful, The Case for Christ, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Hallmark), Wonder, Anne of Green Gables Miniseries, Little House on the Prairie series. How about you? By the way, what projects are you working on besides your poetry? (by the way, I absolutely loved “Edmund’s Sunset”!!!)

      Yours truly,

      Anne or Cordelia Shirley

      Dear Anne,

      I am so incredibly sorry for not responding sooner.  Life has been busy, but I’ve neglected you shamefully, and for that I apologize!
      I love  Hugo, The Book Thief, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,  and  Anne of Green Gables, though I haven’t watched any of the others 🙂 They’re on my watch list now, though!  But man, it’s definitely a tough question xD I think some of my favorite movies would include  The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Lord of the Rings series,  North and South, Pride and Prejudice, Tintin, Up, Woodlawn, all the ToyStories,  Beauty and the Beast, Rogue One, The Insanity of God… Okay, I need to stop!  There are too many 😉 Add to that all the ones you mentioned earlier that I watched 😀
      Some projects I’m working on would be  Elpízoume…  and I’m just trying to stay afloat with writing poetry a lot more consistently than I have been doing the last few months.  I have so many things I’d love to be working on, but I figured I’d focus on just one story for now and spend my energy on that right now 😉
      Wow, thank you so, so much, Anne <3 Edmund’s Sunset was one of my favorite pieces to write xD
      Alright, so I have some questions for you, if you don’t mind.  What projects are you working on right now?  How have you been doing recently?  I know you mentioned that you’ve been pretty busy!  What have your highlights and lowlights been of the last summer and fall seasons?
      Dear Anne, I love you and have missed you so much!

      With warmest regards,

      Emily Byrd Starr

        My Dearest Emily,

        I am so sorry, and please forgive me! I’m afraid I’ve done the same! 🙁 So please don’t worry, because I completely understand, dear! I wanted to write you a nice, long reply “Montegomery style”…but unfortunately idealists don’t always get things done. LOL (Please don’t think I find you obnoxious in the least! I love you very, very dearly too! I wish we could meet up for tea at some vintagey cafe and curl near a cushioned window-seat overlooking some snow-cloaked evergreens and let the warm, smoky fragrance emanating from a fire crackling in the grate thaw the pink tips of our noses! All while our fingertips brush across the pages of our favorite books we’ve brought. That would be delightful, wouldn’t it?)

        I’ve watched a few of those on your list, (my sister and I watched Lord of the Rings this year and we ABSOLUTELY fell in love with it! It is such a wonderful mini-series!) and the others are definitely on my list!

        Well, just now I’m brainstorming a sci-fi-fantasy story, which I am very excited about. (I know it sounds strange to go from historical fiction to sci-fi, 😀 LOL but it’s set in the future, so you could think of it as taking all that’s been foreshadowed in history – the backstory, let’s say – and create a story of the future. Weave together the last fragments of the tapestry so you can see the beauty of the whole. In addition, I wanted to try creating science-fiction that, like C. S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy, explores rather than dissipates the spiritual world. I’m sure you know what I mean. If the heavens proclaim the glory of God, why can’t science fiction?) I’m going to start with a short story, but hopefully I’ll be able to turn it into a novella trilogy!

        Also, I really want to start writing a contemporary short story collection (maybe I’ll add a poem or two –  I would so love that!) about kids with disabilities or disadvantages doing surprising/incredible things despite or through their disabilities, which I’m very eager to write as well! I love the theme of God using the “weak and worthless of this world” to accomplish His purposes. I would love it if you could help me brainstorm for either of these ideas, if you’d like to!

        Lastly, I’m also working on a newsletter and blog, which has taken quite a bit of my time. Other than that, we had a lovely family reunion for Christmas with family hadn’t been together for over 20 years because they live in different countries, so that was beautiful. And of course, there’s school, which always keeps one industrious! XD LOL

        How about you? What projects are you working on just now? Are there any books in particular that have “caught your fancy”? How is your area doing with the Corona Virus? By the way, please don’t feel obligated to reply to this with an equally long epistle! I love short and sweet replies too! 😉

        I’ve missed you so, Emily-of-New-Moon!

        Yours very truly,

        Anne or Cordelia Shirley
