"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: July 15


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 here they are!

Acting Out-- Instead of Telling by Mary Conneally at Seekerville (one of the BEST posts on show vs. tell I've seen in a LONG time)

Tips on Snagging the Right Literary Agent by Jennifer Hudson Taylor at her blog (how to choose the right agent)

The God of Food by Mary DeMuth at her blog (about taking care of our bodies, but not going overboard)

Public Speaking for Newbies II: You're On! by Linda Yezak at 777 Peppermint Place (hints to speaking well before a crowd)

By Way of a Cross by Lynda Schultz at Grains of Sand (about what it really means to follow Him)

Hope you enjoy these reads. Some great stuff here :)

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence
