Ashes hold the inner heat of fire, the spark and ember of flame.
Like those ashes, micro fiction holds the spark of a larger story that may grow to a blaze in the mind of a reader.
I've felt it happen when I've read hint and drabble fiction, like the words of comic books but with images from inside my own imagination.
Consider each piece a frame of embers.
Picture the story in your mind.
Ashes Burn is a micro-fiction serial forthcoming on October 6.
Three characters will share their version of events:
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Originally, each episode was a hint fiction episode of 25 words or fewer, but I expanded on that slightly for a few of the episodes in the hopes of evoking a brighter image.
A note on the blog id name: ashes, embers, and variations on those were already taken. A quick search revealed that aim-uzjon is Proto-Germanic for "ashes burn" an early form of the word "emere" (also taken) which became "embers."
So, welcome to Aim-uzjon aka Ashes Burn.
