"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: February 10

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!

What's Your Story?:::Kristen Schiffman at Christy McGraw's blog Critty Joy (about struggle and trusting God, and His faithfulness)

Three Ways to be the Best Neighbor by Janet Eckles at Reflections in Hindsight (about REALLY loving your neighbor)

Plans (Flash Fiction) by Sara Harricharan at Fiction Fusion (about trust and plans)

Why are you so mean? To you? By Nikki Turner at In Truer Ink (about giving yourself grace and "hypocrisy in reverse)

Updated Publishing Dictionary at Book Ends LLC (terms for writers to know. A GREAT list/reference!)

Hope you enjoy these posts. Lots to read and ponder this week!
