"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 - May 18

  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!

Know What You're Entitled to as a Writer by Cynthia Ruchti at the ACFW blog (about privileges vs rights in our writing journey)

The Dangers of Being an Out-Of-Work Blogger by Lisa Mikitarian at Connecting Now (just read it. TOO hilarious)

Quality vs Quantity of Life by Dee Yoder at Jewels of Encouragement (about life as a gift and
 acceptance as worship)

S is for Simplify by Nikki Turner at In Truer Ink (about lots and lots of stuff)

Hope these posts bless you. I know they did me :)

Traveling Rough Roads With God's Strength
