(because I'm so vain and this site *is* about me)
Hello and welcome to my ‘Rebecca Johnstone’ author site. I’m currently prepping my debut novel to send to agents and publishers. It’s a nerve-wracking time.
Writing is my obsession and I tend to favour the backs of envelopes, pocket-sized notebooks and the artistically defined blank spaces in magazine articles. Using a computer avoids the illegible script that writes itself off the page, but it also lacks the hand-brain connection that I crave.
On this site I’ve created an archive of my poetry and diary-style observations that have previously appeared on various iterations of my personal blog since circa 2011 (and probably a bit before).
Since I was a child I’ve written poems and stories to relive my experiences in words. I love words (the main reason for starting my newsletter: ‘THE WORD‘), and I would say I had a photographic memory, but not so much for faces. (Sorry.)
I live just outside Glasgow, Scotland and tea is my poison. I take photographs too.
