"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: December 24



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!

The Human Side of Christmas by Tracy Knowlton at Internet Cafe Devotions (about Mary's perceptions carrying the Christ child)

Will All Good Writers be Published? By Rachelle Gardner at Rachelle Gardner, Literary Agent (an agent's perspective)

The Longest Night by Lynn Diener at The Blog of D. L. Diener (about the struggling at Christmas)

Triaging Rejection Pain by Laurie Halse Anderson at The Debutante Ball (about dealing with rejection)

Kneeling by Elaine Olsen at Peace for the Journey (about those who come alongside)

So, there ya go! Be sure to drop by these over when you get a chance--and maybe even follow the blogs. You won't be sorry.

And Happy Christmas Eve! Keep Jesus in your hearts :)
