We're pleased to offer you a variety of posts from Editors, Authors, and readers for your intellectual and recreational reading pleasure. We're also including something new that we hope to continue: One flash fiction piece featured for your reading pleasure. This month's very fitting piece is written by Chris Mikesell. The flash fiction piece will not replace our normal entries and we'll be posting submission instructions soon. Please do not submit flash fiction to the carnival right now, they will be ignored.
As you journey the writing grounds, be sure to leave comments and tell them the Carnival of Christian Writer's sent you. Please keep your hands and feet inside at all times and buckle up for your safety. Enjoy the ride...
