Open House at Lilly Creek Farm

This past Sunday I was invited to attend an open house at Lilly Creek Farm to meet with couples who will be having their wedding soon! I was among several other vendors and was more than happy to hand out flyers and information!

Want to hire me for your event? Send me a letter!

Lilly Creek Farm

Lilly Creek Farm

Lilly Creek Farm Events is a wonderful place with a beautiful barn, a lovely arch area, and plenty of room for whatever kind of wedding your heart desires! See their website at www.lillycreekfarmevents.com! They have openings starting in 2023 for weddings so if you like what you see, book TODAY!

Open House

The open house itself was EXPERTLY rendered. Maria, the site owner, had tables inside the barn with specific places for each vendor to go. The barn itself was decorated beautifully and it was very easy to envision the beautiful ceremonies that could be and are held there.

The vendors themselves were absolutely fantastic! Everyone was SO nice and willing to help and talk! It was an absolute joy for me to attend and I couldn’t be more grateful! I even got some of the business cards of other vendors such as venues, officiants, dj’s, and more! Scroll down to the bottom of the post to see what services they have to offer!

Vows

If you didn’t know, I offer vow writing services! A lot of couples have trouble putting their feelings into words and writing them down, especially with the knowledge that their family and friends will be hearing them read these words out loud! That’s where I come in!

I will work with you (and your spouse too!) to unlock your words and put them down on paper! As I’ve said with my poems, “Your Heart, My Words!”

Depending on the package, I will even practice with you multiple times leading up to the big day and, if you want, will even accompany you on your big day to practice one more time to be able to deliver the vows as perfect as you have them in your head!

Poems

I was also offering custom poems! As you know, I write custom poems by taking information, from individuals and couples, and creating a one-of-a-kind custom written work!

Another service I offer is custom on-the-spot poems by the hour! I will bring a table and printer and I will create poems for you and your guests at your event, wedding or otherwise, on the spot!

Dust in the Cosmos

200 billion trillion stars
in the cosmos adorn
and 8 billion humans
from star dust born
14 billion years
the rough estimate age
of all the constellations
on the planetary stage
burning fuel
or souls roaming free?
the cosmos and the heavens
seem the same to me
lifeforms unconnected
geography unmapped
knowledge and understanding
the only thing we lack
on a blue marble full of resources
and an atmospheric shield
like the hearts of those broken
who refuse to yield
a single granule
in a beach full of sand
and yet every soul impacts
this ancient and broiling land
teeming with individuals
and history violent as the sun
cooling just enough
to allow life a bit of fun
and what will happen
when the planet rebounds?
turning cold as ice
emitting no further planetary sound?
we’ll be gone by then
a twinkle in the night sky
to some other planet
also questioning why
the universe is beautiful
and chaotic and unknown
I hope we leave behind
a clue that they were never alone

Happy 2022!

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!

Poetry

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.

Progress

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!

Tire Tales

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.

Novel Update

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!

Tutoring

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 🙂

How it works: Contact me and we will have a quick 10-15 minute phone or video call. During this time I will ask you questions about your recently passed best friend and I will take down careful notes, being sure not to leave anything out.

I will then compile all this information into a beautiful, harmonic written work that will bring a smile to your face and memories flooding back every time you read it!

Lucky Number 13 – Steps to Writing an Essay!

Hello and good morning everyone! Thank you for joining me, E. Lexi Abbott, for another exciting blog post! This post covers the 13 steps of writing an essay. Read on to either confirm what you already know or to learn something new!

Please note: This is just a basic rundown of each step and is meant to be a short read. For any specific questions please remember I am a writing tutor going on 7 years now and do have open slots for students at this time (November 2021)!

Step 1: Research and Brainstorming

I group research and brainstorming into one step because one cannot exist without the other. As we think up what we would like to write about, that decision will either solidify or change depending on new information we acquire while we research!

REMEMBER: Always use legitimate sources and always record which sources you think you will use. This will help you write your Works Cited later!

Step 2: Thesis Statement

A term I am sure you have heard of before, but if you haven’t, the thesis statement is your overall stance that you are taking throughout your paper. Your main point. Your argument.

Coming up with your thesis statement is step one to physically writing your paper. Once you decide on your stance, you have a paper to write.

A STRONG thesis statement is one that can easily be challenged. What do I mean by this? I mean, saying that fluffy cats are cute is a widely agreed upon statement and therefore is a weak thesis statement. Stating that hairless cats are cute is a stronger thesis statement because there is less automatic support and, therefore, you have something to argue and prove. (This is just an example. I personally love MOST animals!)

Your thesis statement should be ONE sentence long. You CAN break it up into the main points you will be making and have three sections to it, but make sure your thesis statement only consists of one sentence.

Side note: A thesis statement goes at the very end of your introduction paragraph OR at the beginning of your first paragraph for longer essays.

Step 3: Outline

After researching, brainstorming, and deciding on a solid thesis statement, the next step is creating the outline!

An outline not only is to help you organize your thoughts but also acts as a road map for your writing. I know I am not the only one who tends to go off on tangents when I write and regularly need to remind myself to get to the point. It is easy to lose your way while writing, ESPECIALLY when writing something you feel strongly about!

A basic outline will look like this:

Introduction –

Thesis:

Body Paragraph 1 –

BP2 –

BP3 – (etc.)

Conclusion

NOTE: The thesis statement is automatically part of the introduction paragraph BUT is important enough to have it’s own space in your outline.

How to fill the outline? – Write ONE sentence for each paragraph. It should be easy to make your point for each paragraph in one sentence, if it isn’t, you have not consolidated your position enough.

Step 4: Introduction Paragraph

First of all, you don’t HAVE to work on your introduction paragraph first! Ever! Why? Because sometimes it is hard to write an introduction paragraph before you’ve written your paper – it is hard to introduce something when that thing does not exist yet!

However! I have found a VERY simple way to write your intro paragraph! I call it the funnel method. In this method, you are going from least to most specific information. Least specific goes at the top, most specific is your thesis statement!

You will have at least four sentences. Four sentences is your

At the beginning of your funnel, write the most general information you can about your subject. (Note: Do not write “since the beginning of time” or anything else like this. It is not technically true. Write something technically true)

The next sentence should be more specific, then more specific, until you reach your thesis statement.

(If you would like personal one-on-one help, reach out to me at the Send A Letter… page!)

Step 5: Conclusion Paragraph

The next step is to go directly to your conclusion paragraph. I will argue until the day that I am no longer writing (will never happen haha) that your conclusion should NOT be a sum-it-all-up conclusion. It may be easy but it adds NOTHING and most academic essays are short enough that your reader does not need to be reminded of what they have read. For longer works, summaries are VERY helpful, but for the usual 5-8 paragraph essay? Not needed.

Instead, write the NEXT STEP. Assume you won your reader over. What should they do with this new information? How will this improve their life? What is the next step? This paragraph should focus on that.

You cannot tie your essay into a pretty little bow. It is not a stand alone topic. People have been and will continue talking about your chosen subject after your essay is written. So instead, export your data.

(Again…any specific questions? Feel free to reach out! Send A Letter…)

Step 6: Body Paragraphs

NOTE: This step is interchangeable with step 7!

Finally, it’s time to start writing your essay! By now you should have a VERY good idea of what you’d like to say. Now, it’s all about getting it written down and edited.

Your body paragraph should be very close to your essay as a whole, structurally. You should have a topic sentence, a statement, and evidence to back it up.

Note: a body paragraph lasts as long as your subject does. Your body paragraph could take up PAGES if you wanted it to, or just a few sentences. Write until you feel you’ve provided sufficient evidence for your point.

Continue for each body paragraph.

Step 7: Quotes

NOTE: This step is interchangeable with step 6!

If your essay is the cake, quotes are the decoration! They support the overall image but cannot stand on their own as a cake…because they are just decorations, not the cake.

Quotes are usually needed to help back up your claim. Your readers don’t know you but if your point is backed up by established experts, you gain credibility!

Always remember to “sew it in”…what do I mean by this? Introduce your quote!! Do not start off your sentence with the quote, explain it a little bit then have the quote, after the quote, EXPLAIN it. Pretend it is blank. Pretend it is in an unknown language. Explain to your readers IN YOUR OWN WORDS what the quote says and how it supports your argument. And last, but not least, end your sentence with an in-text citation relevant to your specific formatting. MLA? (Author page#) APA? (Author, year published) etc.

Also, does your quote take up more than four lines? It’s a block quote. Look it up. You’re welcome!

Step 8: Format

The holy grail of formatting is OwlPurdue.com…memorize this site, love it, commit it to heart. They have EVERYTHING.

MLA – Modern Language Association – used for liberal arts and humanities papers/subjects.

APA – American Psychological Association – used for science papers/subjects.

Chicago – Follows closely to either MLA or APA depending on your subject and is mostly used for the extra formatting it provides. This format is used mostly for publishers of books or journals because of the ability to mix MLA and APA as needed. In all my years of tutoring I have helped ONE student with this format for their essay – this is for large works, not essays. Familiarize yourself with it anyways.

Always follow a format. Why? Because it’s professional and there’s a reason they exist. They make things easy to read and follow. Why do societies speak the same language? Because it makes communication easy to read and follow. Formatting is your friend!

Step 9: Rough Draft

Once you have completed your Introduction, Conclusion, and Body Paragraphs…congratulations! You’ve completed your rough draft!

It is called a rough draft because it is not done. Do NOT turn in your rough draft. I can almost guarantee your paper is not to the level it should be.

Your rough draft is very important. It’s the first version of your completed essay. You have piled all your sand into the sandbox and built the first forms of a castle…time to perfect it!

Step 10-12: EDITS

You will have a second and third draft and possibly even a fourth! Once you have your rough draft and have all the information inside your essay that you want, now it’s time to make sure you:

1) Say it the way you want to (second draft)

2) Have the proper grammar (third draft)

3) Have the correct formatting and have polished it even further after you have let the words sink in a little more (fourth/final draft)

Editing is the most important part of the writing process. I know that as students, especially younger students, you just want to be done with the paper and turn it in BUT if you get into the habit of editing your papers, it will become second nature and from this point forward you will be a stronger and stronger communicator. Just trust me. EDIT!

Step 13: Works Cited

Hopefully you have been keeping track of your sources this whole time. ALWAYS have a Works Cited. Not only does it help YOU go back and find more quotes or more information when you realize your specially chosen original quote doesn’t QUITE work while you’re through your first or second draft of edits…it also helps your readers learn more about the subject you are discussing.

A Works Cited is important not just to avoid plagiarism, but the real reason it is there is so those who are interested in your subject matter can go and do their own research. Learning is an important part of being human and whole groups of people used to sit around and just think about life itself – philosophers in ancient Rome for example.

I personally feel that this joy and love for learning has been lost a little bit, but I hope it will make a return. Curiosity should always be encouraged and should never be stamped out.

My point? Make your Works Cited! Look on OwlPurdue.com for help!

(Or reach out to me! Send A Letter…)

Congratulations! You’ve written an essay! Now go get that A!

CONCLUSION AND FINAL NOTES

Thank you for reading and I hope you found this list of steps helpful! Always remember that the reason teachers have you write essays is to genuinely help your communication and critical thinking skills, not just to give you busy work!

Thank you for joining me on this journey and writing and may you have a lovely day!

As always, please feel free to comment, share, and reach out to me!

Braselton Antique and Arts Festival – Reflection

I am still collecting myself but this weekend was one of the most magical and wonderful things I’ve ever participated in! Read on to see the festival through my eyes and hear about this amazing journey!

ROCKY START

The weekend started out almost as bad as it could get (luckily not AS bad as it could get)! When I arrived they had a shut down time for driving to your spot I was not aware of, I forgot my tent weights so I had to take back down my pop up tent so it wouldn’t blow around, everything kept falling on the ground, it took forever to get going, and my anxiety was off the charts.

Luckily, my wonderful and supportive father came and brought me my tent weights and between him and my mother that came and spent the WHOLE festival with me from set up to tear down, my tent was up and running in record time!

THE WRITTEN WORD

After I got set up, the sales started coming in! My first sale was before I got my tent set up and she was the most wonderful supportive person! I was glad to have met her! (Pictures below)

Out of all the poems I got to write, the ones that stood out the most were: A man who bought a poem for his wife and read it to her at my booth so I got to see her reaction, a 10 year old girl named Emily who got a poem for her recently deceased grandfather named Poppi, and a young couple who had liked each other for four years before gaining the courage to admit it to one another, found that they liked each other, and now have been dating for 10 months and are about to move in together!

I had a few customers cry happy tears and all of my poems hit home for those I made them for. I was so happy to see their smiling faces!

TIRE TALES

Other than writing poems for customers, I was debuting my educational children’s book series Tire Tales! I was delighted to see how happy my series made people!

I created 10 different coloring page designs and had them at my booth, thanks to one of my friends who printed them out for me (thank you David!!) I had some beautiful artwork I got to hang up for all to see!

REARRANGING

Throughout the weekend I tried a few different layouts for my booth. By the end of the festival I had it down to a science!

At first I had my easel up near the front so people could watch me draw the Tire Tales characters. I even had some kids that wanted me to draw extra images or wanted to try coloring in the images themselves! (Side note: It is a lot easier to draw on my iPad where I can redo lines than it is with chalk on a drawing pad!!)

Then, I moved a small table near the front and set my portable printer and iPad on it along with a sign hanging above to create custom poems for people and make it more obvious what I could do!

FINAL NOTES

Overall, I am so grateful to have had the opportunity and the experience to be a vendor at the Braselton Antique and Arts festival! I remembered why I call myself a writer and the joy I have in creating unique and special poems and experiences for others!

If YOU would like a custom poem made or to order any of my books (Tire Tales series or poetry chapbooks) feel free to drop me a line on the “Send a Letter” page!

Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

The Frog On The Log

Frog on a Log Painting by Linda Eader
Painting by: Linda Eader

once upon a time
there sat a frog
he sat upon
a bump on a log
he sat there through sunshine
and rain and fog
he saw the world go by
while he was nestled in sod
all the other kids thought he was boring
but I knew he was wise
he was watching the events of the world
go by
so, I decided to sit with him too
at first, I sat cross-legged
without my shoes
but my feet got cold
and when it rained, I got wet
when it became night
I felt ready to set
my sights towards home
but there sat that frog
so, I got up and shook myself off
I settled back down
beside the creature
the creature who had neither
twitched a wink or moved an eye
he sat staring forward at where the ground met the sky
so, I stared there too and then I saw why
the sunrise was beautiful like painting the sky
and when the light broke, I felt I could cry
because circling there above the horizon
was the past, the future, and the present to rise in
conjunction with the sun, the moon, and the stars
I sat there throughout the whole day staring towards Mars
I now understand that frog with all my heart
sometimes it takes sitting still to become smart

Unlocking Your Words – Saying What You Want To Say

Hello and welcome to another article written by yours truly, writer and tutor – E. Lexi Abbott! Today’s article is about unlocking your words and saying what it is that you mean to say.

First thing’s first, what do I mean by this? In my experience as both a writer and a tutor, 98% of the time we tend to get in our own way. We know what we want to say and we know what we mean by the way we word things. This knowledge results in us forgetting a very important and critical thing – we are not our audience. Our audience is another person or a group of other people besides ourselves with different backgrounds, upbringings, and ways of expressing themselves. This often leads us to getting in our readers’ way which is the #1 NO-NO of writing.

NEVER get in your readers’ way.

So how do we fix this? How do we make sure that our readers can understand us? How can we say what we want to in a way that others can understand?

Welcome to the article!

Step 1: What Are You Saying?

I know what you’re thinking – “E. Lexi, I know what I am saying, it is written down in black and white right here in front of me,” – but the words you have chosen to write is not what I am talking about.

What I mean is…what is the whole scope of what you are trying to say? What are the details?

Here’s an example: I was tutoring a student of mine once (1/28/2021) and he was trying to write a paper comparing movies to books, arguing that movies are better. One of his examples was that movies are better because more goes into them than books. I asked him to explain and he said: “You have to pay more money to more people to make a movie,” and while this is not wrong, it’s not the right thing to say either. The reason it is not the right thing to say is because it does not get to the core of what he was trying to say.

What he was saying did not match what he MEANT

What he MEANT was: You have to not only write the movie script, but you have to print it out, hire actors to act it out, hire people to create the props, hire people to create the choreography, hire people to do the lighting, hire people to film, hire people to shoot the movie, hire people to edit the movie, hire people to animate the movie (if there is any animation)…so on and so forth.

I kept asking him to explain more, explaining that he was only saying surface information, but he couldn’t get past that he had already said what he said and thought that it was what he meant. He could not come to terms with the fact that he had not yet explained the depth of what he was trying to say. Eventually, I asked him if he would like a metaphor to help explain it and he said, “Yes, please!” (it is important to note that I have been working with this student for a few weeks now so we have finally gained a recognition of one another and how we work).

Iceberg flat vector floating on sea with underwater part cartoon illustration, snowberg ice berg or glacier in ocean under water image

What I told him was this: “Remember the Titanic? Remember how they ran into the iceberg because they could see the top but not the bottom because of how big it is under the water? Think of your words in that way. What you are telling me is, “You pay more money to produce a movie!” but what you MEAN is, “A movie takes actors, filming, props, lighting, editing, and more!” So, say what you mean! Everyone in the world can see the top of the iceberg, but they can’t see under the water.” After this explanation he said, “Ohhhhhhhh!” and hallelujah! The lightbulb moment was there!

So…what are you ACTUALLY trying to say? What do you mean when you say what you have written down on that paper of yours in front of you?

When a teacher/tutor tells you to explain further, but you feel that you have already explained all that you can, take a step back and think about what conclusion you are trying to lead your reader to and then just write that down instead. Direct and to the point in writing is ALWAYS better than fancy flourish!

Until next time!

hello, my name is Human
i am a product of flesh and bone
hello, my name is Human
i live in a green and blue biome

hello, my name is Human
and i’m not quite sure why i exist
i’ll spend the rest of eternity
trying to define the meaning of bliss

hello, my name is Human
and what a funny creature to be
i have dominated everything
from the land to the sea

hello, my name is Human
and every generation i forget my past
i forget the dancing paintings
on the cave walls that have last-

-ed through the eons
though we’ve only been here for a wink
we’ve already destroyed most the environment
and are starting to sink

hello, my name is Human
i prefer to think of myself as divine creation
i fight tooth and nail with my brethren
to create a united nation

hello, my name is Human
and creation is in my soul
tell me what to write
and instead i will draw

hello, my name is Human
and when we cease to exist
our remains will litter the planet
until it joins the black abyss

hello, my name is Human
and i have got a soul
i need to remember my roots
and return to the world of old

hello, my name is Creature
and i am one with the forest that surrounds
i dance and i sing
and my energy is all around

hello, our name is Human
and we are a collective few
we forgot our destruction
and dove back to our roots

hello, our name is Human
and we are part of the divine
we sing with the canary
and burrow with the porcupine

hello, our name is Life
and together we sing
we are happy being One
and in tune with everything

hello
