There's a contradiction in the visual imagery. "Flame" and "spring" are not very compatible as metaphors for emotion. A spring is not generally a very fierce body of water, unlike a raging river or a maelstrom or whatnot. Visualizing a spring erupting is a little odd, to me. I could see a bubbling spring of cool, fresh water being contrasted with a steaming ...

Like @elburz, I also thought the spring was a real spring in the earth. However, the real point of confusion for me was that I would not readily identify a "flamy spring... dormant in me" as a sign of overflowing passion. I feel to properly get this idea across, more elaboration would be needed, a la: Those days mining in the depths of West Virginia have ...

I could suggest the Water! trilogy by Gael Baudino, but it's not well-known and I found the experimental format exhausting. Still, Your Mileage May Vary. In the three books (O Greenest Branch, The Dove Looked In, Branch and Crown) she kept switching not merely narrator and POV, but the entire narrative style: parts were standard narration, then parts were ...

I like that and do that in my writings. But many people say it is not good to break the chronology of a story, it would disturb the flow. I am currently writing a fantasy novel and would like to start it directly from the part action is made, and then, in the next chapter, tell how things happened. I think what you're willing to do is flashback. This can ...
