"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


A Cafe Stop - and Finds for Fridays for May 13

Would love if you'd stop by the Internet Cafe today. I'm there talking about one of my favorite places to be - but a location I REALLY need to get out of more often. Read along as you learn how important it is to Exit The Zone.

And now - to the other business of the day :)


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

For all those who mother by Lynn Diener at The Blog of D.L. Diener (about different kinds of moms)

Talking Guy: Best of Seekerville from the Archives by Tina Radcliffe at Seekerville (about capturing the "guy voice" in your writing)

The Case for Slow Miracles by Michael Hyatt at his blog (about God's workings over time)

SOTP Writing: Characters by Linda Yezak at 777 Peppermint Place (about "meeting" your novel characters)

5 hurdles to leap if you want to be published by Mary DeMuth at her blog (about exactly what the title says ;) )

Know What You Know by Debbie Dillon at Jewels of Encouragement (about what we share)

The Case for Putting a Manuscript in the Drawer by Nathan Bransford at his blog (about moving on if necessary)

Be sure to stop by these posts - and even follow the blogs. A great afternoon of reading - trust me :)
