Flicker of Inspiration: Tell a story in 11 words

This post is in response to The Lightning and the Lightning Bug link-up. Their prompt this week asked that you tell a story in exactly 11 words. Since it is summer and we are heading to the beach soon, my mind drifted to this picture of our son I took last year. Here we go!

Matching toes with water’s edge.
Eyes locked on one goal.


  1. I love it! My sons always have that same goal - no matter where they are. Beautiful photograph, too!

  2. I love this. Perfect words for summer wave jumping!

  3. Great! Having the photo just seals the deal!

  4. Wow! This is awesome! Perfect story, perfect picture.

  5. Oh, I used to LOVE to jump waves just like that. I adore that first line...I can almost feel the water creeping up on me! Great job!

  6. So great, so fun, so SUMMER!!!
    Great writing and great picture!

  7. I absolutely love this :) I haven't been brave enough to try any of the Lightning Bug prompts. Maybe this one, lol. But anyway, loved yours :) And the photo was adorable, too! Very creative.

    Happy writing!
