"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 24

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 Elevator Pitch (a poem for all you going to conferences) by Chip MacGregor at his blog (what NOT to do when you try to sell your book to an editor. Laugh alert!)

Fruit Basket Turnover by Patty Wysong at Internet Cafe Devotions (about giving our offering "whole" and God breaking it. WOW)

How to Find an Audience for Your Novel by Janalyn Voigt at WordServe Water Cooler (about market and passion)

I'm Looking For a Llama by Terry Burns at From The Heart (about what makes a book exceptional)

Hope you enjoy these posts. I know I did!

Traveling Rough Roads With God's Strength


  1. Love your Friday find, Joanne! I'm on my way now. Oh, and I'm vlogging again today! LOL I haven't made it to your question yet. I'm kind of hoping to have my sibs in on that one so you can decide for yourself!


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
