"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


Finds for Fridays: October 29, 2010


Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following about 100 blogs and at least scan them as much as I can. Each week, I'll note and "set aside" some posts that especially speak to me for whatever reason. And each Friday that I am able, I'll share them with you. I hope you'll stop by and read the posts, and maybe even follow the blogs if you aren't already. A win-win, right?

And now...here they are!

Prophet Without Honor by Terry Burns at Cowboy Musing (about those closest to us recognizing our writing success)

Which POV am I Using? by Yvonne Blake at My Back Door (about writing--and living--points of view)

Should You Keep Your Goals to Yourself? By Michael Hyatt at Michael Hyatt's blog (about the psychology of sharing vs. keeping quiet your goals)

Cleaning Up Our Messes by Katdish at Katdish dot net (about messy bedrooms and mama's help)

Godly Gals - LauraLee Shaw by Melissa Mashburn/LauraLee Shaw at Mel's World (about raindrops, mudpies, and my dear friend LauraLee)

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you check out these posts, and maybe even become a follower of the blogs. Some great reading out there.

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence


  1. What a great idea, Joanne! We sometimes miss the gems along the way. Thanks for sharing the wealth. Am off to check out a couple of the posts provided. :-)

  2. Thanks for the privilege of being featured here. (I got the idea when our pastor asked us to think about how we see ourselves and others...I get my best ideas at church.)

  4. Thanks for sharing the goodies Joanne. Hope you're enjoying a great weekend.

  5. Hi Joanne. I have come to your Blog through Becky and I like it very much, so hope you don't mind if I follow you too! I agree with Sherri, it's amazing that you can look at so many Blogs in a week! I catch as many as I can.
