I wrote this essay for my English class. A new story idea might bloom from the research I gathered...Hopefully you find the topic interesting and challenging as I do. 🙂 Adulthood is not behavior-defined. It is biologically defined. That said, once the body has physically transformed into an adult, normally occurring at a certain age, … Continue reading Adulthood: A Matter of Biology and Potential
I do love me a western. Here's a snippet of a western novel idea I'm concocting. Nothing serious--just something fun. *grins* AT THE BUCKIN’ BRONCOS WESTERN NOVEL SNIPPET Banners streamed from a window on one side of main street to a window on the other side, criss-crossing above the heads of Guntry’s festive inhabitants. The … Continue reading At the Buckin’ Broncos
Well, this is disappointing. I can't seem to figure out how to space out the different verses in wordpress. But casting all that aside, here's a brief look into my poetic-ish endeavors. I thought this style would suit the subject more, since poetry is succinct and can be more fragmentary. P.S. I have included … Continue reading Brittle
Here's a short little story I've thought of writing down for several months. I'm not quite satisfied with the emotional mood of the story...Oh well. An added attraction is that this story is a pangram: that means that each sentence begins with the consecutive letter in the alphabet. Enjoy! Autumn leaves blew under the … Continue reading Pangram–Wings
Yes! I think I may actually like this story of mine!! Yaay! I know on my About Me page, I describe myself as more whimsical and westerns don't really fall into the starry-eyed category--I am whimsical, but I have grown up on westerns! Maybe it's the legendry of the Wild West which draws me to … Continue reading CW7–A Western Retelling
I find it very easy to simply glide over a well-known Bible passage, but the Lord had other plans. He applied this verse to my own life, in a way I know I've been needing for a long time. …Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a … Continue reading J3–Hack Down the Thicket
Just a little taste of classic literary analysis. Redeeming the epic tradition, John Milton retells Christian mythology by mingling the divine with the mortal in Paradise Lost. His poetic rendition paints the entwined relationship of God, angels, and men that brings about man’s fall. Lifting him to converse with Heaven’s entities, Milton crowns man with … Continue reading Paradise Lost: On Fallen Angel and Man
CHAPTER X IN THE MORNING The iron gate swung stiffly on its rusty hinges. A tall, dark man with an enigmatic face and piercing eyes strode along the velvet carpet of green grass still wet from last-night’s shower to a modest gravestone. He stared at it, a cream rose in one hand. “‘In … Continue reading The Absolute Finale
I should be sued for taking a whole month to post the last bits of my Novel Project. Truth be told, I've been waiting because I know I should keep working on my conclusion...but then I thought to myself, "that's what the official For the Love of Elaine site is for--to post my edited novella." … Continue reading NP Final Installments 3

Thank you, Laura!!! So touched!!! ❤
This is my last sandbox! I’m trying not to cry, but instead rejoice in the wonderful time I’ve spent playing and digging and building with you all.
Here, as we end this year, I want to truly appreciate some of what I’ve seen this year.
I would have loved to give awards to my entire class, as I have savored the time we’ve spent together in creating one of the best classes of my entire life! You are all such wonderful writers, whatever angle or style you prefer! Truly, a class of this kind takes courage and determination, and you’ve all showed that. It’s been amazing, even if I haven’t had time to read all your novellas (or even most of them).
So, before we go any further, here’s my class-wide
