The Story of my Blog Title

Quilt of Dragonflies- My blog is named that for a reason.I am lucky enough to own a genuine Quilt of Dragonflies, which I am sure brings me good dreams when I sleep beneath it. It was given to me by a friend of my mother's, who handmade the entire thing. Color meets pattern in this fantastic piece of artwork which sits on my bed. Brilliant shades of purple, blue, and green intersperse with tie dye dragonflies. I will not hesitate to call it my inspiration.

Five Sentence Fiction

Hey there everyone. I have been meaning to try out five sentence fiction for awhile, because I was curious and it kind of reminded me of poetry. Five sentence fiction can be found every week at Spring Days, New Growth, which is another good writing blog I found through Write on Wednesdays. Anyways, here we go!

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the inspiration word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just take your inspiration from that word. 

Word this week: Horror

"Mo-om, this tiara doesn't fit right, " whined Sabrina, picking at the sickening costume she herself had decided on. Oh, the horror, thought her mother, drifting up the stairs yet again to perfect the cloud of pink which had descended on her daughter. Sabrina had found this year's costume "all by herself," which had haunted her mother solidly for the past week and a half. As she straightened her sweetie's glittering crown in preparation for the big night, anyone watching would have thought this was some pre-pagaent ritual, that she was reading her daughter for the catwalk, but Sabrina's mother just sighed. It was only Halloween, after all.  


  1. This is so sweet and real. I love your take on this week's prompt!

    Thank you for joining sure to link up your post at

  2. "The cloud of pink that had descended on her daughter" - love it! It certainly can be a horror when those girls get all girly! Good twist with Halloween.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, but all credit must go to Lillie for hosting Five Sentence Fiction - Thankyou Lillie!

  3. Oh the horror of an ill-fitting tiara, I can imagine my girl (4yo) doing the exact same thing!
    Interesting take on the theme, it was really good!

  4. I may have read this wrong, but I'm reading the horror was in fact over a too sweet to endure super-pink princess outfit for halloween instead of some more in keeping with the ghoulish holiday? I feel the mother's pain! LOL


Thanks so much for reading my piece. I am always looking for inspiring words, suggestions, and feelings you got from reading this. Please leave your thoughts here.
