This month’s Table of Contents for the daily online magazine, Everyday Fiction, can be found on their home page: http://www.everydayfiction.com
My story, Tag, You’re It is scheduled to be published on Saturday, May 11, 2013. This story comes in at just under a thousand words. Its characters are a quartet of siblings who must deal with the unexpected loss of their mother. Their uneasy relationships as young adults are tested in the days leading up to and during her funeral. The story was originally inspired by a prompt from the NPR “Three Minute Fiction” contest.
Everyday Fiction publishes new short stories of a thousand words or less, stories that, as their web site explains, “can be read during your lunch hour, in transit, or even over breakfast.” I hope you, Dear Reader, will set aside a few minutes on the Saturday after next to read Tag, You’re It.
