Do you remember earlier this year when we shared our methods of journaling?  I’d like to give you a peek into my notes for The House of Mirth book 1, chapter 6

Christine’s chapter notes…

LB and Selden go for a walk; she’s free with him.
?  Who’s Omar Khayyam? (I look him up later and find that he was a Persian poet)
Selden’s success is in his personal freedom.
For LB success is getting as much as one can out of life

At this moment I make a prediction:  These two will never be together.

Selden agrees with me.  Look what he says in this chapter.

From whatever angle he viewed their dawning intimacy, he could not see it as part of her scheme of life…

Man. (said with whining)  Selden is the only man in this book that I like even a little.

What do you think?  Is there a future for Selden and Lily?

    I agree with you – I like Selden for Lily but they don’t have a future together. Her aims are just so different than his.

    Selden, whom I’ve been writing as Sheldon in my notes, (boy, I need glasses!) knows Lily so much better than she knows herself. And he knows they do not have a chance either. I’m bummed.
