"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: March 16

  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!

When it Comes to Getting an Agent... By Wendy Lawton at ACFW Blog (about tips to getting an agent)

How I Learned to Stop Wasting What I Love by Kristen Schiffmann at Exemplify Ministries (about treasuring what you have)

Lucky Kim by Billy Coffey at What I Learned Today (about what we're training our kids for)

The "Why" Factor by Mary Vee at The Writers Alley (about questions to ask about your plot)

I need to say that ALL FOUR of these posts completely blew me away. I wouldn't miss a single one - and I'm sure I'll be back to them later. Don't miss these!

Have a great weekend!

Traveling Rough Roads With God's Strength


  1. Very helpful post. Thanks for sharing! Holly

  2. The title of the post from Exemplify jumps out at me. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for the shout out Joanne. We'd love to have more friends stop by the Writer's Alley.
    Blessings on all your readers, and you as well:)

  4. I read a couple of these posts and you are right! They are great!

    Especially the one by Mary Vee! Of course, I'm partial since I am one of her fellow Alley Cats! She is amazing!


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