“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.” —

Abigale Writes -

Y’all. I took the plunge, quit my corporate, cubicle job, and became a self-employed freelance writer and copy editor.  Please check out my website and if any of you need (or know of others that need) writing and editing assistance for their publication, company or non-profit, please drop my name! I would really appreciate it.
