Leaving Derbyshire

Dear Journal,

For the first time in my life that I remember, I am leaving Derbyshire. I'm very excited, but a little apprehensive. At least I'm not going by myself. Having my cousins, aunt and uncle and adopted aunt there will make the change much easier.

I apologize for the messiness of my handwriting. I'm bumping along in a carriage with my cousins as we head to London. It's pretty tight in here, so I think I'll stop writing and read instead.


I slipped my journal and pen into my traveling bag and took out a book. My cousins were dozing off, and after a few chapters, I felt like sleeping myself. Before I knew it, I was being awakened by my uncle, and we were in London! It was late in the evening, which prevented me from getting a good look around me.

The next morning, I woke up late because of our traveling. I saw that my trunk had been brought into my room. After glancing around, I saw with pleasure that there was a little closet in one corner, perfect for my clothes. I picked out a dress to wear for the day, and began to unpack.

You sound just like me, Bekah - worrying about your handwriting!

I love how you wrote in what I call diary form, and then switched to narrative first person. Great style. :)
