About

My name is Abby. I am an editor, writer, and content strategist by day and a calligrapher by night.

I am married to this guy.

This blog is a little experiment in continual word play. That is all.

Abbot Palladius said: The soul that wishes to live according to the will of Christ should either learn faithfully what it does not yet know, or teach openly what it does know. But if, when it can, it desires to do neither of these things, it is afflicted with madness. For the first step away from God is a distaste for learning, and lack of appetite for those things for which the soul hungers when it seeks God.

— The Wisdom of the Desert, ed. Thomas Merton

  1. Abby! I like your blog. You’re a great writer. I’m going to keep coming back to this when I need a fresh burst of inspiration. It was good seeing you last week, albeit briefly. Glad you enjoyed the wedding!

  2. Abby, I hope you still remember who I am.
    I ‘walked’ into your blog some weeks ago and I think it’s great and full of inspiration, so I did a post on my blog about it! I also hope you don’t mind about that (If you do, do let me know)

    Looking forward to reading more from you.

  3. Goodness: dogs, calligraphy, a hunger for learning, walking in the footsteps of Christ, and being a bad housewife in a good marriage. You’re not me, are you?! So happy to find you through Freshly Pressed, and good luck with all your endeavours. 🙂

  4. I really like your blog! Is there anyway I can contact you about possible review titles. Please email me kenya(dot)walker@us(dot)penguingroup(dot)com

  5. Hi Abby,

    My name is Alex and I am a Communications Manager at Barnard College. I am reaching out to you today with an idea for your blog. Being perfect and powerful, being a feminist: these are among the most popular topics of conversation among today’s young women. Barnard College’s new podcast series, Dare to Use the F-Word, tells the story of today’s feminists through the ideas, art, and activism that define them. Barnard President Debora Spar, in her new book Wonder Women: Sex, Power & the Quest for Perfection, explains that while most women today struggle with the idea of perfection, they also struggle with the concept of feminism itself. Are the two connected? Read President Spar’s thoughts in this exclusive post: https://barnard.edu/news/web-exclusive-president-spar.

    As a communications manager at Barnard, I want to continue these important conversations among feminist thought-leaders like you. I ask you to republish and share this post on your blog. Pose these questions to your audience; they may dare others to join us and use the f-word.

    Kindly,
    Alex

  6. Hi Abby! I just came across your post, “A Copy Editor’s Dream” on “Freshly Pressed” and I was immediately drawn to it. I have enjoyed looking through the rest of your blog and am now a follower. I look forward to reading more of your posts; we are similar in so many ways. ❤
