"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


Old and New - Plus Finds for Fridays: February 17

Last month, I learned just how much a mattress can have in common with a baby, a rebellious teenager - and salvation. How, you ask? Stop by the Internet Cafe, and read what I learned about this in my devotional, Old to New.

 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!

Thursday Tete a tete by Rita Garcia at Reflections with Dr. Rita (about "natural" talent)

The Divine Dance by Jennifer Slattery at Jennifer Slattery Lives Out Loud (about keeping your eyes on your partner)

Tackling A Writer's Fears by Leslie Stobbe at the ACFW blog (about overcoming writer fears through His Word)

Love Letters and Valentines by Karen Fendick at Internet Cafe Devotions (about a valentine to - and from - the Lord)

Hope you enjoy these posts - and learn something. I know I did!
