Sundays are the best

Today was the Scout parade in Dorchester-on-Thames.  If you haven’t been there you should.  It is lovely: quaint old village with the beautiful Dorchester Abbey.  We had lunch before the parade started at the Fleur de Lys pub (& hotel) – the food was very good and the chef made, from scratch, a special sweet potato, leek and pepper pie as I’m a vegetarian.  We were lucky with the weather too. 

Now, I have to get back to proofing/editing my book.  I am finding it a little easier to focus on the grammar and sentence structure, but it is still extremely easy to fall into the trap of ‘reading’ the story rather than assessing its literary structure.  It’s worse if I’m tired!

I am going to post the beginning of my teen novel.  I am very wary of doing this.  But, as other authors have done it without any repercussions, I ought to just tighten my stays and hit the ‘post’ button.

Keep a watch….


About Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write, I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2017 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you liked it - or even why not!
