"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: December 16

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!

God Lives Under The Bed By Joy Bach at Life Moments (about faith like a child)

Never Give Up by Kimberly Russell at Roar of a Lioness (about priorities and perseverance)

A Lesson for Writers from Jonah and the Whale by Jeannie Campbell at The Character Therapist (about giant successes, and little failures)

The #1 Gift You Can Give for Christmas by Jessica R. Patch at her blog (about little Jesus getting - and giving - gifts)

Living with a 92% by Elaine Olsen at Peace For The Journey (about striving for perfection and living in our best effort)

Hope you'll take the time to check these posts out, and maybe even follow the blogs. You won't be sorry.
