June’s theme is speculative fiction. I’ve read that the Christian fiction industry uses the phrase speculative fiction while the general market uses science fiction and fantasy.
Whatever you call this genre, all the Monday Sparks will feature speculative fiction prompts that will allow your imagination to run wild.
What’s the story? Here’s mine:
I shifted my guitar to my back, and the sparks of magic I’d strummed into flying settled to the ground and winked away.
Molith City, lit beneath my feet, shone almost as bright under a blanket of heat that had rolled in the first week of August.
Molith City. I’d heard a lot of things about the mega city back home. None of them good. But if that’s where Zare was, I had to go down the hillside and go in.
Taking a deep breath, I started down the steep slope. I swung my guitar in front of me and strummed up some sparks for the light and company.
