Carrie Fisher's not publicizing it, but she's aspiring to a writing career.
Besides some recent magazine pieces, she's penning a book of what her agent calls "human comedy fiction pieces" for Simon & Schuster, due out in 1987. And she's been deep in negotiation with ABC to write a pilot episode for a sitcom that Buck Henry would write and exec produce.
Her agent told us the deal was "just closed." But ABC (at press time) said firmly that "nothing's firmed up" and negotiations are continuing.
