"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: October 7

Click here to enter my giveaway for a $5 Starbucks gift card - and learn more about Lisa Mikitarian's wonderful book, Her Safari. WINNER ANNOUNCED SUNDAY.

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!

The #1 Reason Why You Should Kiss With Your Eyes Open by Jessica R. Patch at her blog (just prepare to laugh so hard you cry)

Overwhelmed But Not Overcome by Hanne Moon at Jewels of Encouragement (about evil, Ecclesiastes, and a bit of hope)

Her Sister's Hero by Sherry Castulleccio at Embattled Warrior (about God's power and our reluctance)

Borrowing Tomorrow's Troubles by Kristen Schiffmann at On Talk 21 (about living in today)

Characterization Multitasking by Linda Yezak at 777 Peppermint Place (about showing both characters from one's point of view)

Your Words Right Now By Julia Reffner at The Writers Alley (about our writing purpose)

Hope you enjoy these posts. Stop by and read - and maybe even follow these blogs. You won't be disappointed!
