Okay...wish me luck!
Firstly, it was tricky choosing a fave book. I have a few that I absolutely adore. There are not many books at all that I would re-read (I barely have time to read them the first time!), but there are three books I will read again. Some day...
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald
Girl With a Pearl Earring, Tracy Chevalier
Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte
I chose the last of the three in the end.
Here's the first paragraph of the magnificently crafted Jane Eyre:
There was no possibility of taking a walk that day. We had been wandering, indeed, in the leafless shrubbery an hour in the morning; but since dinner (Mrs Reed, when there was no company, dined early) the cold winter wind had brought with it clouds so sombre, and a rain so penetrating, that further outdoor exercise was now out of the question.
Here's my rewrite, using my ongoing story with Kate and Cassie:
Cassie had already decided she couldn't run later at lunch today. Sitting at her desk, she peered past the row of workers towards the floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and lifted her head to take a look outside. On days like this, when the humidity was high and the sun's rays permeated the skin even in the early hours of the morning, there was no chance of any outside exercise taking place just after noon. In fact, the only place Cassie could see herself at one o'clock was sitting at her desk; a hastily purchased chicken salad before her, and her latest juicy Lisa Heidke novel clutched eagerly in her hand.
