Welcome to Abigail's Journal Space

I have set up this space to provide a focus for all things writing-related and in order to keep some kind of record of my published pieces. Where possible I will supply links to e zines and information about printed material. If you wish to get in touch with me directly, please leave a comment. Alternatively, I can be found on both Twitter and Facebook.

In addition to the outlets mentioned above and in fairness to all the editors to whom I am equally grateful, my work has also appeared in: 'Ink, Sweat & Tears', 'Symmetry Pebbles', 'Reflections Magazine', 'Earth Love', 'First Edition', 'Magnificent Me', 'The Human Genre Project' and 'Rumble'. If I have left anyone out, I apologise in advance. I will rectify any omissions of discovery. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Abi

I have just popped in this morning to add a new link to 'Rumble'.  The current issue, out today, contains my 'micro piece' 'Outline'.  If you have a minute to spare, you could do worse than have a look.  Even if you don't like my piece, 'Rumble' is a great magazine.  :0)

Thursday, 25th March

Here we go again.  Far too much to do and not enough time to do any of it properly.  Why do I keep inflicting this kind of panic on myself?  I have two short weeks in which to work out the structure of a screenplay - I am still fannying around re-defining the action-idea - and then write enough of it to demonstrate that it's utterly brilliant.  At the same time, I have lines to learn for the new murder mystery - which was penned by my good friend, David Carlisle, and is utterly brilliant - and in which I play - titter ye not! -  the part of Twiggy St Clair, super model.  Now, I have lost twelve pounds since January but I will need to lose another twelve to make even  a passable Twiggy.  Fortunately, it's a comedy - and I will be wearing a wig and a hat.  By the way, my thanks go to the talented and tireless Barbara Laffin for her 'Garage Entertainment' fundraiser which took place last Saturday.  This proved to be a show that was truly fun for all the family.  I enjoyed it so much that, in a moment of weakness, I agreed to do a'turn' next time.  See what I mean?  Maybe I should deliver my rendition of 'I'm Jest A Gal Who Can't Say No'...  Back to the screenplay!
