In my story, to go to next page I wrote "I completed my sentence and turned the page.". But now I want to go back to my previous page, I wrote "I realized that I have missed something, so I turned the previous page back."

Please let me know if this is correct way of writing, also please help me with other ways to write the same intentions.

  • @Standback Could you move this to english.SE, I'd think it would be on topic there. – user5645 Jan 14 '15 at 13:15
  • @what I checked, and it's not on topic at EL&U without a specific question or a problem with what's wrong. – Standback Jan 14 '15 at 13:32
  • NotesArt, you might find ell.stackexchange.com useful - it's better geared for questions like "is this ok" and basic English phrasing/grammar . :) – Standback Jan 14 '15 at 13:33

In English you "turn the page" to go to the next page in a book, and you "turn back the page" to go to the previous page.

In your situation, you might write something like:

I completed the sentence and turned the page.

I realized I had missed something and turned back the page.
