Dee Steeleabout this book: Hoping to put a new spin on how we perceive bullying, we first must ask ourselves as parents do we ever pay attention to your child's behavior and do you know the signs that would later be defined as bullying? I don't think we do because we always say; oh she/he is just a baby. As a parent I was guilty of doing the same thing. However we love our offspring and see no wrong. My book is strictly for entertainment and in no way am I attacking anyone parenting skills.
Beedy happens to travel down a road as a child that her mother label as self-destruction, she later admits that maybe she should've gotten her some professional help, but never did. AWARENESS! With a lot of humor involved. Beedy is a fictional character that I invented in my mind's eye and she happens to fit the character that I was looking for. She's very smart, a thinker and she believe in herself. I wrote this book with preteens in mind, but I find that the adults enjoy her just as much. Beedy Weedy the Prankster is a series of three (3) books and this is the first of the series, the second (2) series is titled Beedy Weedy Strikes Back.
I was browsing the internet and I happen to come upon this add offering a writing course in children books, I signed up and passed the course remembering that I already had a character in mind and I decided to see if what I learned would pay off. Writing is something I had a feel for, but never attempted to take it to the next level. Finding myself with so much time on my hands I decided to pick up where I left off. By this being my first children book it took me roughly six months to come up with a story line, a plot, and an ending, I had completed the book, but only had about twenty pages and my plan was to self-publish. I was told that my book wasn't long enough. I went back and re-invented Beedy's character with different scenarios, I found myself laughing profoundly; I knew my book had come together.
The hardest part of writing my book was to be able to know when I had reached a point that I didn't need to continue to justify and my thought was complete. I had to do a lot of editing to get to the point that it would hold the reader's interest, that was a nightmare, but I did it. I didn't have to do research per-say because this is fictional, but without a doubt I have a vivid imagination and I took a lot notes just by what I saw on the TV and heard in everyday talking. I learned that all you need is a will, a drive and an idea and anyone can be a writer. I then asked my friends, family anyone I can get to read my book just to give me their spin on my work and I loved what they had to say.
