"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 3

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!

Delivery Room Angst by Karlene Jacobsen at Jewels of Encouragement
(about wait and pain and the reward at the end)

Dirty Snow Angel by Mari LaVell at A Mari Heart (about perfection and God using those of us who aren't)

Potentially Tense Canaries by Andy Scheer at From The Heart (about spell-check NOT being the be-all, end-all - made me laugh)

Five Ways to Welcome New Chicks by Lisa Lickel at Reflections in Hindsight (on being a wonderful in-law)

When Writing Isn't Your Day Job (guest post) by Nancy Kimball at Seekerville (on dealing with word-count envy and other such things)

Hope you enjoy these posts - I know I did :)
