|Joined DWG:||Lurked since 1999, posted stories in 2007|
|Favorite Jane Austen novel:||Pride & Prejudice|
|Second favorite JA novel:||Mansfield Park|
|Favorite JA adaptation:||P&P2 (1995)|
My Austen-related career:
- Read P&P for the first time in 1971 (thus dating myself!), the other five soon afterwards, and saw the late 60s "lost" P&P version on TV.
- Lurked at DWG & BoI since 1999 and at other sites as they appeared.
- Started writing my own Austen fanfic stories in 2004, and posted the teen-suited ones at DWG in 2007.
- After compiling the lists that preceded it for a few years, learned web design and MySQL (I'm a retired database programmer/analyst) and put the JAFF Index online in 2006.
And although I note P&P2 as my favourite adaptation, I also like P&P3 very much, and the Bollywood B&P.
