I am a self-proclaimed member of the LoA (League of Awesomeness): Mistress of Well-Intentioned Indecision.

Special Needs Teacher, wife, mother of two, center-brained, imaginative, pragmatist. Sometimes I sing. Sometimes I take pictures. Sometimes I doodle or make stuff.
I just have too many irons in the fire.. I like fire.. it is pretty and warm.. I like to dance and sing by the fire, but I am careful. I always remember who I am.

I am Mistress Elshanor of Hawk Manor, Head Librarian, Keeper of the Secret Passageway to Mount Krully, and Keeper of the Ficlinomicon AND Kevin Lawver’s Pen. I think..

Stories

  1. Alex in Hunterland (Final)

    She screamed, crumpling into a sobbing mess. Alex almost felt sorry for her, but then he remembered that he would get a fortune for this pelt and gave a victorious whoop. The world crumpled as her eyes rose to his, makeup running, pupils dark and cold....

  2. Alex in Hunterland (part 9)

    Alex threw his tranquilized turkey down. The crowd gasped. The Queen looked furious. “I want the white rabbit,” he declared. “The white rabbit is not yours to hunt,” the Queen said with too much calm in her voice. “If I fi...

  3. Alex in Hunterland (part 8)

    The Queen walked to a pen filled with wild turkeys. She loaded a dart gun with one shot, aimed, and speared the Tom of her choice. The turkey fell over, paralyzed with tranq. “Your turn.” She handed him the gun and a 3 of Spades held out a ...

  4. Alex in Hunterland (part 7)

    The cards stood at attention, forming a path that led to a tree stand covered in camo and bearing a yellow and black checkered flag. He cautiously approached, wondering if the Queen would come down if if she expected he would come up. The flap opened a...

  5. Alex in Hunterland (part 6)

    Stumbling from the bar in the middle of the forest, Alex found himself in the middle of some sort of dirt road. Looking ahead, he saw a barb wire fence and a gate with a No Trespassing sign. Behind him the forest loomed dark and he wished he had a weap...

  6. Alex in Hunterland (part 5)

    “I don’t got I.D. I’m gonna catch the white rabbit!” The men at the end of the bar spit out their beer and guffawed, showing their missing teeth. The barman beat his meaty hand on the bar. “No laughing allowed! Drink up!&#...

  7. Alex in Hunterland (part 4)

    “You’ll never catch him without a trap,” the cat purred. “Are there more of them?” The boy licked his lips in eagerness. The cat grinned wider. “I know where you will find what you need.” The cat twitched his t...

  8. Alex in Hunterland (part 3)

    Glancing about, he spied an old goat trail and soon found his way down the cliff face to a desert land full of dust. Suddenly gunshots rang out and Alex fell flat on his face, covering his head with his arms. He was not hurt. Peeking through his arms, ...

  9. Alex in Hunterland (part 2)

    Alex shut his eyes tight. He could feel the steel grip of his step-dad’s hands, smell his reeking breath. His body tingled at the thought of the painful bludgeoning he was about to receive. But it didn’t come. Alex felt another warm breeze ...

  10. Alex in Hunterland (part 1)

    “I’m gonna learnt you good, boy!” hollered the drunken hulk of a step-dad from the kitchen. Alex’s heart began to race. It was only an empty threat unless the man bothered to get up. His young ears strained to hear the distincti...

  11. Villainous 3 word challenge

    Random words on a random page, flipping madly, I stop. One word jumps out at me: malice There is no reason why I shouldn’t be plotting my revenge. Who to attack first? This goes all the way to the top but I’ve been shoved so far down, shipp...

  12. Some Things Are Universal

    We were in class. School in space is different from school on Earth. There are no desks, chairs, or chalk. In some ways it is cooler to use electronic tablets and hologram projection TVs in your own room. But there are no playgrounds and good food is h...

  13. Led to Discovery

    She didn’t move quickly. That should have been my first clue. She had easily melted into the trees before. Pushing supple young branches far back, she made sure they were swinging for several paces behind her. Her trail of dancing underbrush beck...

  14. The 'Witch' In The Hall

    Most of the time I tried not to see into people’s past. The ghosts around them were easy to ignore. I guess you could say I had grown a callous that encased me in a world of silent brooding. I did not have many friends, because anyone who became ...

  15. Everything Was Dread

    They said the apocalypse had come. I don’t even remember who they are, just being shoved into the mouth of this dark space. I think we had practiced, because I remember what it looked like from above. I remember the feeling of telling myself that...

  16. Semi-Private Moment

    A large man wearing camouflage cover-alls took a knee at the edge of the grass before the dock. One hand held a stout object vertically beside him, either a rifle or a fishing pole; it was hard to tell from this distance. He certainly looked like a hun...

  17. Today's Thoughts

    “I’d have to be really desperate to take a temp job holding a sign on a street corner for 8 hours,” my husband said as we waited for the light to turn green at a busy intersection. “You think they have someone from the agency ch...

  18. Into Open Air

    I couldn’t help but notice the shape of the steel blades on the fan and how they would have chopped up a body with blunt force had they been on. Acrylic sailed up before me, reaching the end of his grappling line and peering over the lip into the...

  19. Escape Plan

    “The city is in gridlock.” Acrylic announced in the silence punctuated by fizzing and smoldering components. I dusted glass shards off of my lab coat. Fetus had slowly approached the box containing the heart and lungs. “What is she do...

  20. Laser Eyes

    If he hadn’t said they were droids, I’d never have guessed. They were as large as Daemon. Any attempt to take them out as if they were flesh would have ended the assailant’s life. I suddenly missed the team below us. Fetus growled in ...

  21. Unamused Pickle

    I glanced at the lone pickle dancing in the green juice inside its jar as I walked. “Well pickle, it’s just you and me.” My stomach rumbled. “Pretty soon it will be just me.” The pickle was not amused. My car had run out o...

  22. Followed Across the Plain

    Elshanor glanced up from the tattered map in her hand. “The rest was burnt away, but something about that observatory feels familiar.” “The fox has stopped.” Robert mumbled under his breath. “Don’t worry about her,&#...

  23. Cake

    My mind is awash in half-formed ideas, phrases strung together in a cacophony of sound that makes very little sense. If someone could listen in..get back in your chair..the things they’d overhear..birthday cake, cake would be a good title..I̵...

  24. Another Day In The Life of A Nanny

    I arrived early like I did almost every day, between manicured rose bushes guarding a 3 story house slightly below mansion status. Mrs. Cray was always running around, her son wildly determined to loudly and obnoxiously interrupt her morning routine. S...

  25. Where Elsha Has Been

    He sat behind the desk. I studied his face. Was he trying not to smile? This was not the face of bad news. I sat and listened. “We can offer you a temporary position.” My head nodded, my eyes glowed. This was exactly what I had been dreamin...

  26. Liquid Love

    I don’t know who this cabin-girl was, but I liked her. She had guts, all kinds of weapons, and despite the weird blood-letting and odd apothecary in her kitchen, I trusted her. It was weird that I didn’t notice the other woman come in, but ...

  27. Where Are They Now?

    The documentary team closes in on a room full of clear black boards with wet erase marker writings all over them. A young man in a long labcoat wields a marker, furiously writing in some sort of alien language. A face now fills the screen, a name below...

  28. Revenge of the Journal

    Dear Mandi, It has been a pleasure being your journal, don’t get me wrong, but the constant angst, fretting, worry, and tear stains have gotten out of control! My pages are bubbling out of shape, my edges are frayed, and the glue is about to give...

  29. Self-Help With My Fake Therapist

    “It’s just.. this is it for me. I don’t want to go back to that dark place.” I stared at my shoe. It was easier than trying to figure out the mirror’s blank stare. “You’ve experienced it before.” It was a...

  30. As If Naming Him Gunther Wasn't Bad Enough..

    “Gunther!” The boy jumped and curled tighter into a ball in his hiding place. Maybe she would tire before she found him. Last time had not ended so well. He was sure he had a better hiding spot this time. “Boy! You’re only makin...
