"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: September 30

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!

Why Do We Tell Stories? by Rachelle Gardner at her blog ( about our need, as humans, for stories)

When Desperation Takes Over by Jennifer Slattery at The Christian Pulse (about our need for God and His provision)

Talker's Block by Seth Godin at his blog (about improving your writing)

4 Components of a Compelling Elevator Pitch by Michael Hyatt at his blog (about just what the title says)

There's Always a Squeegee When You Need It by Pat Guy at Pat's Porch (about enjoying God's gifts)

Straw or Hay...What's the Difference? by Joy Bach at Life Moments (about the similarities - and the implication)

He's Not The God Who Watches by Mary Hampton at Internet Cafe Devotions (about watching vs. seeing)

I know my list is a TOUCH longer than usual - but folks were in RARE form this week! Great stuff - enjoy - and follow!
