Cobalt Blue Dust

Written for the Weekly Writing Challenge. This week’s challenge is a story that is 50 words long. Surprisingly, I didn’t have to edit it much. It was a fun exercise though, and something I might try again in the future. Here is my entry:

 

The chipped paint on my fingertips is all I have left. I want to use the acrid-smelling potion to remove that last little bit of cobalt blue. It looks unprofessional, and I have a date with judges of professionalism. But removing it would be erasing memories; erasing him. I can’t.

  20. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on
    the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking
    about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
