First Five Fragments for Friday

Your weekly offering of writing/art/journal prompts:

 1. Post-Halloween quiet, Day of the Dead, fallow gardens, and a breath before holiday shopping madness.

2. Silky fluff from burst-open milkweed pods rivals the first snow for soft, white purity.

3. It’s hard to autograph an e-reader edition of a book. How can authors make those editions personalized for readers?

4. Watch a small child chase dust motes in a shaft of sunlight and be reminded of how a bit of magic can be found anywhere.

5. Have you accidentally run over a small animal (like a quickly-darting kamikaze squirrel) with your car lately?

Ready, set, go!


  1. How to autograph an ereader is an interesting question. Apparently there's an app for that. Really. And an option to upload a one page 'autograph' page for Kindle. Although if I like the book well enough to want it autographed, I probably have a hard copy of it. At lease for now. 🙂


  2. I recently ran over a red squirrel that darted between the front and back tires as I was driving my kid and her boyfriend to our house. I actually teared up right there. I hate that.

    But, I do plan on having a wonderful weekend! You, too.


  3. I especially love your fourth fragment, Kathleen. Thanks for sharing it.

    I, too, have read about an app to “autograph” an e-book, but to me, it just wouldn't be the same special feeling.

    Have a great week!
