About Abigail

I'm an elementary education major at a college in the Midwest. I might graduate as early as December '13 but more likely May '14. I write when I can. I also knit on occasion, draw, do homework and contradict teachers to make people think. :)

    Interesting. It’s very hard to do though! I have to practice becoming ruthless with my own work, so I leave it for weeks before attempting to edit.

      One of the most valuable skills to learn as I writer, as I have learned, is the art of deleting. But doing it, and even learning to do it, is very hard. I do agree.

    Colette has a much more catchy way of saying ‘Kill your darlings’.
