"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: April 15


Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following over 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!

Guest Linda Yezak's Recipe for a Golden Manuscript By Linda Yezak at Reflections in Hindsight (about the need for critique partners)

Speak to Your Mountain By Debbie Dillon at Jewels of Encouragement (about God in our trials)

My Husband Loves Me By Mary DeMuth at her blog (about the beauty others see, but we don't)

If Fishes Were Wishes and Ponies Were Cheap By the MikChiks at Connecting Now (about parents, children, and pet recipient logic)

Why Do We Write? By Scott Eagan at Babbles from Scott Eagan (about where our writing passion should be from)

Be sure to check these out - great reading. And while you're there, follow the blogs. Thanks!
