Hello and good morning! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from me to you! I truly hope you’ve all been well and had a wonderful holiday season!
What’s coming for E. Lexi Abbott in 2022? Well, quite a few things!
I am happy to announce that I have decided to switch my focus from Tire Tales to writing poetry. This is the medium of writing that I am most versed in and experienced with and I have noticed that I not only have the ability to write good poetry, but poetry that hits home and leaves those I write for with happy tears brimming in their eyes.
With this new direction I have been contacting businesses to partner with them and offer their clients custom one-of-a-kind poems! I keep saying they’re not personalized, they’re customized! Meaning that rather having an original script and simply inserting a customer’s information, I create their poem from the ground up with information and memories that they share with me.
As of right now, January 4th (2022), I am partnered with 13 funeral homes, two animal clinics, a major flower shop, and a wedding venue! I am super excited for the poems I will hopefully be writing this year and I am still expanding and reaching out!

While my focus HAS shifted from Tire Tales to poetry, that does not mean I am giving up on the series completely. In the works, slowly but surely, I am re-drawing the artwork for the first three books and continuing to work on and improve the website (TireTalesAdventures.com). What I hope to bring to the website is a Kids Only section with educational activities and projects, a support section for parents and teachers, and more reading and learning material as time goes on.

I had an opportunity to submit a novel manuscript to Random House Publishing through SCBWI and I was elated to begin working on the manuscript for my novel “Two Lives, One Soul” from the ground up. I got 30,000 words in before I even began at the start of the first draft, so a LOT of content was added as well as finite details about the world and the characters that I just simply hadn’t worked out before.
I did not hear back from them, which was sad, but I do realize that this novel may have potential as a finished product rather than a WIP forever just being used to hone my writing skills. I will be looking for opportunities to submit the manuscript in the future and will be working on it along and along. Last I checked, I was at 50,000 words…so it’s going to be a big one. Very excited!
While I have moved on from working at the tutoring center I was employed with due to rising demand of attention and time to my other work, I still am open for independent tutoring.
For those who don’t know, I’ve been tutoring for five years now. I began during the last two years of my college career, working as a Writing Tutor in the Writing Center for four consecutive semesters (two years) and as a Writing Fellow for two consecutive semesters (one year, overlapping). After graduating, I joined as an employee to Best In Class Education Center where I learned and worked with Pre-K through high school level students.
This means my experience has rounded out to include all age-groups and writing styles and has given me the ability to meet students where they are at whether they are younger or older, new or experienced with writing.
I help with all stages of the writing process for academic as well as creative writing and every single student I have ever worked with has seen their grades shoot up from C’s and D’s to A’s and B’s…but mostly A’s…after a couple weeks together. Especially with young students, it is important to work on courage and confidence as well as actual writing skill 🙂
