Ficly Blogger-In-Chieftess

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..

  1. So Hard To Say Good-bye (song)

  4. Stepping Out

  8. Waking Up

    I hated those times when I couldn’t find any reason to get up out of bed. Only this time, I literally couldn’t get up. White tiles, all I could see were white ceiling tiles. Then a face leaned into my view. I blinked to clear the fuzziness. Someone...

  9. Not Thinking About The Demon Whisperer

  11. Arriving Underground
