This marks a big milestone for me, publication in my favorite magazine, the Drabblecast! My story, “Constant Companion” was published there as part of their Drabblecast’s 23rd Trifecta special, with 2 other stories, one of those stories by my friend Sandra M. Odell.
It’s a story about a wooden boy and the carpenter who made him, but the story doesn’t go where you’d expect.
The story came from an effort to write a 2nd-person story that I didn’t hate. Really, I guess it’s 1st-person, but that person is primarily telling a 2nd person what they have done, but done in a way that makes sense in the story instead of being a gimmick like 2nd-person generally strikes me.
IF you get a chance to listen, feel free to comment!

Congrats! I’ve recently started listening to podcasts on my way to and from work, so I’ll put yours on tomorrow morning.
Thanks Madison! Let me know what you think, if you get the chance. 🙂
