My first publication. It's online.

Writing that's good for you and your tummy

As of yesterday, you will find my drabble (fiction of precisely 100 words), Walking on Eggshells, in the latest issue of Boston Literary Magazine. You'll find it, of course, in The Drabble.

Kudos also to blog reader and friend Lisa M. Palin who also has a drabble published in this issue, although for some reason it is currently posted with the Quick Fiction. (I'm sure they'll sort it out soon enough.)

Go. Read. Enjoy.

  2. Congrats Carrie. That cracked me up. You deserve a beak-- I mean break. I am especially partial to bird stories.

  3. Yay for you, Carrie!

    I hadn't come across drabble before. I like it. Yours reads more like a poem than a mini-story.

  4. Just read it. Very nice; didn't even think of the narrator being an animal until the mention of feathers or being inside an egg.
