"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: February 11


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!

Ten Things Super Mom Can Teach the National Football League By Cheryl Moeller at Mom Laughs (a woman's take on football)

The Teen Years Don't Have to Be Painful by Jennifer Slattery and Jennifer Slattery Lives Out Loud (about keeping connected with your teen)

It's (NOT) All About Me! By Leah Adams at The Point (about where focus should be)

Writing, Striving and THE GREAT GATSBY by Nathan Bransford at Nathan Bransford, Author (about writers and striving)

Guard Your Door by Mari LaVell at A Mari Heart (about possession, and feeding the right lion)

I hope you check out these posts, and maybe even follow the blogs. You won't be disappointed!

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence


  1. How did I miss Mari's this week? Thanks, Jo:)

  2. Hi Joanne! I’m stopping by because back in October you signed up to join the HOMEmakers challenge on Amy Bayliss’ blog. Amy has since passed on the HOMEmakers challenge and I wanted to invite you over to join in if you are still interested. :)
    It’s at joyfulmothering.net

  3. Even though I don't always leave a comment, I enjoy visiting your blogs on Fridays because that's where some of the best reading can be found. Great job. Keep up the good work. (Thursdays at FaithWriters I also enjoy reading the stories on the Cheering board that you pick for our enjoyment.) You are such an encourager.

  4. Hi Joanne,
    I haven't been to Nathan's in awhile--thank you. Hope you have a great weekend and hear awesome news soon!


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
