"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: August 19 (and JoE)

I'm over at Jewels of Encouragement today, talking about being proactive about "The Golden Rule." Pop over and read what I have to say about Grabbing the Initiative!



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!

Conflict- the most frequently screwed up story element by Scott Eagan at Babbles from Scott Eagan

Relentless Noise by Joy Bach at Life Moments (about the consequences of quiet)

M is for Marshmallows by "Sawa" Harricharan at In Shades of Scarlet (about a great search - with silliness)

Spine-Out Titles by Andy Scheer at From the Heart (about the importance of a book title)

Kill Those Bugaboos by Janet Dean at Seekerville (about stuff in manuscripts to get rid of)

Be sure to stop by these blogs - and subscribe to them so you can be blessed every time they post. Great stuff. Enjoy!
