Harmony is Vocal! The Iron Dwellers #ShortStory in @Vocal_Creators #MagicalRealism #challenge #fiction

The Iron Dwellers …


Hi everyone. In the wee small hours of this morning, when my muse insisted on being decidedly wide awake to pester me relentlessly, lols 😂 , I wrote a short story for Vocal’s Magical Realism Under Purple Clouds challenge. It took me all day, and now I’m a tad bit tired, so I’ll be playing catchup online tomorrow!


Vocal’s criteria for this fiction challenge is to ‘Write the first chapter of a magical realism story that starts with the following sentence:

‘Every night at midnight, the purple clouds came out to dance with the blushing sky.’

You can find my entry HERE, which comes in at 1,804 words and is estimated as an 9 minute read.

I’d love to know what you think! And I would be delighted if you could read and heart. To heart and/or comment, you’ll need to sign in to Vocal, which is free to do.

Thanks for all your support! Hugs 🤗💕🙂

  1. An exceptionally imaginative story, Harmony. The ending was really creepy.

    • Thanks so much, Yvi. This means a lot seeing as I haven’t tackled magical realism previously 💕🙂
