Don’t know how to market this

In December 1989, a notice in the local paper requested readers to send in their Christmas stories. The stories could be either fiction or nonfiction. I wrote a very short story and submitted it to the newspaper at the last minute. My story wasn’t published, but I didn’t toss it. I even began revising it a couple of times.

The story is an odd one, even for me. I wrote it from the point of view of a five-year-old girl, with the timeframe set shortly after the end of World War II. It’s not really a children’s story. Then again, it’s not really an adult story either.

Recently, I took another look at “Susie’s Surprise.” I have no idea where to market it; I suspect it isn’t marketable. That’s why I posted it on this site under the heading My Work in Progress. I’ll leave the story up for a few weeks while I make some more revisions, and then I’ll look for a venue to post it online as a freebie.
