Scribbled thoughts of a mad woman

New Author blogs about writing

The draft folder in my ‘posts’ is slowly filling up with complete drivel. I start off writing something I think is going to be funny or interesting or, at the very least, related to something relevant. By the time I’ve finished typing and read through it I realise what a complete load of shi** I’ve created and there it sits. My problem, you see, is a complete inability to cut out and delete the rubbish stuff. On its own it sounds okay but when it snuggles up with the other okay bits I end up with a whiffy gym-socks result. I can’t see past the smell to pull out the offensive sock and so it lingers, unwashed and unwanted. The pile is growing. I can’t even cull that.

I’m going to sign off before this blog ends up in the same place.

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 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Banished-ebook/dp/B008PGM4TQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361913026&sr=8-1. 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!
