Scribbled thoughts of a mad woman

New Author blogs about writing

The power of ‘

Leave a comment

I cringe at misused apostrophes but am usually able to grit my teeth and sail past the offending shop window, flick over the page or scroll down.  But today, horror of horrors, I found an old note I’d written which included the phrase:

‘…shake it’s tail..’

Now, had I written it when I was 10 I might have forgiven myself but this note was only 3 months old! 

To cap it all I’ve run out of chocolate.

I think I shall burn the note and pretend it never happened.

Author: 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 2014 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 lied it - or even why not!
