"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: January 13

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!

Feeling the Pain by Lynda Schultz at Grains of Sand (about God's pain in our sin)

Simple Thoughts About Fair Use by Seth Godin at his blog (about copyright and such - stuff you should know)

Slay Your Dragons Before Breakfast by Michael Hyatt at his blog (about keeping on top of lethargy of every kind)

You Are The Decisive Element by Nikki Turner at In Truer Ink (about the influence we have)

Hope you enjoy these posts. MUCH wisdom here - trust me! Have a great weekend!
