Coming February, 2021: Hold Your Fire: Stories Celebrating the Creative Spark

S For Story/10437405
MONUMENT, Colo. - s4story -- Creativity comes from many places, but often the initial spark of inspiration can be traced to something or someone who challenged us to first put pen to paper or brush to canvas, to pick up a camera, to look at the world with new eyes. Maybe it was the lyrics of a favorite album. Maybe it was the encouragement from a beloved teacher. Maybe it was seeing a wonder of the natural world.

Maybe it was just a feeling deep down inside that demanded to be set free, a voice ready to be heard, a story begging to be told.

Hold Your Fire is a collection of nineteen short stories celebrating the power and influence of inspiration in all its forms—art, literature, music, astronomy, science, inventions, epiphanies.

Here you will find stories of people being inspired as well as stories of people inspiring someone else. Stories not only of artistic inspiration but of scientific discoveries. The "Eureka!" moments that change the whole world and the small moments when someone dares to fight one more day.

And since every fire casts a shadow, there are also a few horror stories that thrive in the dark.
