Have you ever had one of those pieces that just can’t settle down and be? When you first write it, you draft a picture book. Later on, it becomes a short story. Then it makes an appearence as an essay. That’s was definitely the case with “Jingle Bell Joy,” but at long last it gets to make its debut . . . as an essay in Mom for the Holidays, an eb00k available on Amazon.
Read this piece of nonfiction and you’ll realize how long this story has been taking shape. Jared is a preschooler!
A word of advice — if you have a story that you are having troubles finding a home, don’t give up. Try a different market, try rewriting it in a different form, but try. It will be worth the effort.
