Visual Fiction – Dawn Guardtower
“The sentry gripped his spear with sweaty hands, watching the shadowy figures moving in the valley below. The final assault was beginning and it was likely he would not see another day. Behind him, the sun rose, a blazing orb setting alight the funeral pyre of the world.”
I took this picture from my kitchen window, as a matter of fact.
About David Stewart
I am a writer of anything quirky and weird. I love most genres of fiction and in each there are stories that I would consider "my kind of story".

Thanks. I got up sleepily, looked out the window and then ran and got the camera before it could change.

That paragraph is so evocative — suddenly that beautiful sunrise is filled with foreboding. Also, now I want more of this story, damn you! 🙂

I’ve noticed that with other people’s flash fiction, it’s never a full story, just a teaser scene that makes you want more. I’ll think about it, or you could write it 😉

What a stunning view to wake up to as you drink your morning coffee

Yeah, I’m pretty lucky, although there are a lot of tops of buildings too that got cropped out. Still, it’s a nice view.
