"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Friends (cuz I miss her!) - WFW

Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted this week by Penny at Pennyraine. Be sure to stop by her blog for more visual inspiration from scripture.

Friends (both local and virtual) are such a HUGE part of my life. As many of you know, I met several of my virtual ones at the FaithWriters conference last month. This is a picture of me and my incredible, wonderful, amazing soul sister/twin separated at birth/brain-sharer Patty "Peejers" Wysong (she's the Patterings gal) at the conference. She is absolutely, positively THE best - and she's been working at her local fair the past week or so, and we haven't chatted in years (LOL a slight exaggeration)! Miss ya, sweets!

Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel. Proverbs 27:9 NIV
