This week for Write On Edge was about summer. To celebrate, participants were challenged to write about sand in 450 words or less. Well, not about sand, just have it in the story.
The grains of sand slipped one by one through his fingers. They turned invisible when they hit the ground, blending in with the other grains that made up the beach he sat on. He let the rest of the sand fall before running his fingers through it. His fingers carved slim paths through the sand, creating swirling patterns. A smile twitched his lips when he finished.
