1995 vs 2005: A COMPARISON OF TWO BELOVED ADAPTATIONS OF JANE AUSTEN’S PRIDE AND PRJEUDICE
There are few who haven’t heard of Jane Austen. Her novels are over two centuries old, but they still hold strong and true during our times, with characters and situations that are still relatable in our era. Jane Austen’s popularity has increased even more with most of her stories being adapted for TV or the big screen. Perhaps, the one that has been most adapted is her beloved novel, Pride and Prejudice. Among all of these adaptations, there are two that stand out from the rest: the 1995 BBC version and the 2005 Hollywood film version. In the 1995 version, Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth portray Elizabeth Bennet and Mr.Darcy respectively, while in the 2005 version, we get to see Keira Knightly paired opposite Matthew Macfayden.

Acceptance from The Colored Lens Magazine!

Hi Friends,
I have good news— “The Houses They Became” has been accepted for publication by The Colored Lens. In the light of this acceptance, I think I’ll talk a little about my journey with The Colored Lens. The Colored Lens was one of the first magazines I chose to submit my stories to, back in 2015 when I gathered the courage to send my stories out. To date, I’ve sent them almost 17 short stories. Many made it to their second round, where they “Hold” stories for possible publication. It was a sign that there was something in my stories they liked, something which made them hold it till their final voting round. However, all were rejected. Coming this close and still getting a rejection can dampen your spirits even more, but I did not lose heart. I like the magazine, and I wanted to get published by them. Finally, that goal has been achieved after they accepted the latest fantasy short story I submitted to them “The Houses They Became.” I’m very fond of this story and I’m glad the…
