I'm a Bad Witch: Why I Wasn't at Witchfest on Saturday

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I spent Saturday on the sofa rather than being at Witchfest in West London, or at the Visions of the Occult event at the Tate, or at the College of Psychic Studies‘ Tarot weekend, or at Conway Hall for London Fortean’s Haunted Landscapes

Yeah that’s exactly the kind of reason I originally called myself a Bad Witch when I started writing my blog. Sometimes I stay at home instead of going out and doing witchy things. I did get an online ticket for Haunted Landscape, and enjoyed the talks very much indeed. I’ll list them here so you know what you missed if you weren’t there or watching from your own sofa:
  • Jasper Goodall showing his eerie photography during a talk called Into The Wild Night
  • Roy Vickery on Eerie Planet Folklore
  • Dr Victoria Flood on Alderley Edge and the Dead Man
  • Daniel and Clara on Avebury Imaginary: a personal history of a stone circle and hill
  • Jeremy Harte on John Wesley and the Devil: Hell-Wrestling with the Magic Methodists
  • Brice Stratford on The New Forest: A Pocket of Pixies
  • Lisa Schneidau on Monsters from the Deep: River Folk Tales of Britain and Ireland
  • Irving Finkel on The First Ghosts
But – and this probably makes me even more of a bad witch – I don’t regret my choice. You see, I spent a lot of time before the talks started, in between them, and after they finished, adding more words to the novel I’m writing for NaNoWriMo. That’s the National Novel Writing Month challenge to write 50,000 words of fiction during the month of November. I’m nearly up to 40,000 words now, so feel I’m in a good place to meet the target by the deadline.
If you did go to Witchfest – or any of the other fabulous events at the weekend, do leave a comment and say what you did and what fun you had. If you took a photo at or ouside any of the events and want to share it on A Bad Witch’s Blog, then please email me at [email protected] 
The photo on this post shows a hedgehog muff on the sofa where I was sitting. My husband bought me the muff coz he thought sticking my hands into a stuffed hedgehog would be just the thing to keep me warm. Obviously I can’t use the muff while I’m writing.
