Hello and welcome to my ‘Rebecca Johnstone’ author site which I know one day will be filled with links to actual books, and not just this one.
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).
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 laptop avoids the illegible script that writes itself off the page, but it also lacks the hand-brain connection that I crave.
Since I was a child I’ve written poems and stories to regurgitate my experiences in words. I love words. 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.
And I’m in the process of editing my first novel which is harder than it sounds to sit and (critically) read your own book all day, but easier than writing it was in the first place. Kind of.
