Just Jot It January 18th – Elegance


It hasn’t been often in my life that I’ve felt elegant. I don’t have a job that requires any level of it, and I never really have. I used to dress nicely when I worked in an office, particularly when I was the receptionist.Β  I’ve enjoyed going out to parties, dances, and bars, (in my younger years) but those days are gone.

But I do appreciate elegance. And so I write about it. The characters in my novels are far more elegant than I can ever dream to be. It’s just one of the many things I compensate for using my imagination. They say those who can’t do, teach. I suppose it could be said that I teach the population of my stories what I can do in theory but not practice in real life. Or maybe they teach me.

The “Elegance” prompt is brought to you by Kelli at Forty, c’est Fantastique!. Please go and say hi and follow her if you don’t already!

  19. Very nice. I’ve had occasions to be elegant, but in my heart, still a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl. ☺


  20. I like to think writing and our characters teach us. You are very elegant with words.


  21. Elegance is personal… Maybe it is not the delicate pearls, the coiffed hair and tiny hands. Maybe it is in the way the wind flows through your hair, the way your eyes sparkle when you laugh or just your gait after a good ice-cream expedition.

  22. As my post suggests, elegance and me don’t work in the same sentence.

  26. I started my journey into elegance late. Pretty late. I am less than 5 years old, and I may not even be doing it right. But I do feel really good doing it. Sharing your elegance knowledge with your characters help people like me know what to do-because we read! And you are right. It probably teaches you too.


  27. I would have loved to have been elegant, but there is no hope for me now πŸ™‚

  28. Hi Linda I don’t think I have ever been elegant, at 4ft 10Β½inches it doesn’t go with the territory! But elegance is more than looks and I think we can all be elegant in our own way. πŸ™‚
