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

Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa...

I am remiss.  I note with shame and horror that many months have passed since my last entry.  I cannot possibly hope to 'catch up' on all developments so I have no choice but to start from here and to resolve to do better this time.

So, what is the news?  Well, I my poetry collection, 'Moths in a Jar' is reviewed in the current edition of 'Words with JAM'.  I will try to add a link that will enable readers to subscribe to this excellent magazine, which is all the more excellent for being totally free.  Also, I have a piece of flash, 'Evening Prayer', and story, 'The Gecko's Tale' which has just gone on line at millionstories.net. My good friend, Richard Thomas, is now the editor of Symmetry Pebbles and he has been kind enough recently to publish a number of my poems.  I will try to provide a link for this also but, for those of you who may be impatient, both 'Words with JAM' and 'Symmetry Pebbles' are easily located with the aid of Google.

In a rather different arena, I have recently had an enormous amount of fun playing Pussy in 'Pussy in Boots', an adult pantomime that raised £380 for children with cancer.  Our next project is Old Time Music Hall so I am preparing to be Marie Lloyd.  Anybody out there in possession of a parasol and a suitable hat?  If so, do speak up.  It is all in a worthy cause. :0)
