December Prompt

Write a story involving hearts ablaze, and a key.

Feel your senses heighten as passion swells your chest. Whether you fight for virtue or seek the thrill of dark pleasures, something always fans the flames…

Desire drives us all. Warriors beat shields to a grand speech and thump chests when victorious. Lovers lock gazes over dinner like a killer and victim over the knife. Emotion thaws. Beautiful art, sunrises, and crescendoing music. The blazing eyes of a zealot. For others it’s love of money, or unreciprocated charity. Revolutions rise with fervor but pistols stay holstered until the moment comes. From babes clutching their mothers to elderly couples sharing their last breath, we humans are creatures of the heart. And so are the things we make. Machines fed on glowing coal and rockets propelled by raging heat. But volcanic depths of liquid flame and stars of pure fire litter the universe. What are our passions against the grand scope of the cosmos?

This issue invites you to explore Hearts Ablaze, whatever that means to you. Fantasy, contemporary, romance, crime. All genres are welcome.

Submissions close December 31st at 11:59 pm EST. Magazine only open to new writers.
