Like I do every year around this time,
I like to read Christmas stories from two books that my writer friends (who
contributed to stories in the books) gave me a few years ago. Some stories are
nostalgic, some are humorous, others are a little sad but with hope at the end.
Always with hope at the end. The stories are uplifting and inspirational. Every
morning I read at least two stories from each book.
Maybe you have a story or two that you’ve been meaning to
send to publishers who publish anthologies. That is a great way for a writer to
break into the business and get a byline. Not only will readers enjoy reading
your story, but you’ll have the satisfaction of seeing your name in print. Make
it a goal next year to submit your manuscripts to magazines, book anthologies,
newspaper articles, as well as to book publishers. I might just be reading your
story next Christmas.
Now I have to get ready for our annual Cookie Exchange Party, which I am hosting this year. Wishing you Happy Holidays with your families.Back to baking!
