#SnippetSunday “…after all there was no internet.” #Bookish #Romance

Thanks to everyone stopping by last week and a special thanks to those who left a comment. I really appreciate it.
I’m re-posting a story which I started a many years ago. It’s written in first POV, which has been a challenge to say the least. So, some of you may know the story already, but I’d appreciate constructive critique ☺

Enjoy ♥

Well, at least I think that’s what it says. I’m a bit rusty on the old German. But I’m sure my uncle Georg might be able to help me out.

Anyway, my name is Sadie. Mum died a few weeks back and now I’m stuck on this massive airplane with Grandma’s diary in my bag. It’s kind of weird snooping in Grandma’s deepest thoughts and feelings, but in a way it’s fascinating going back in history. But not only going back in history, but also to a different continent. Mum was born in Germany, but left in her twenties and came to Australia. Quite a journey those days, and she told me a lot about it. Kind of scary actually to just leave everything behind. I mean, after all there was no internet or the chance to quickly call home to say Hey everyone I’ve arrived and settled in this super tiny town of Beauty Creek. No, those days you had to write the old fashioned letters and wait a couple of months for a reply.

Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

    1. No, i hope it’s the little snippets that are confusing and not my story. It’s about an Australian girl finding her German grandmother’s diary, a contemporary romance. I hope I’ll get there one day … my toughest project, yet.

  1. It’s not been so long ago. After I moved to the US from England, my mother and I exchanged letters almost every week. Of course we could chat on the telephone, although a long conversation got expensive.

    1. Aurora, I remember those days as well when I moved here … expensive long phone calls or the excitement of finding a letter from “home” in the letterbox 🙂 I have to quiz you one day about your move !

    1. It was only 20 yrs ago when a letter took anything from a week to three month to get to the other side of the world 🙂
