"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: June 22

  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!

Are You a Writer? Then You Have To Be A Superhero! by Cindy Wilson at the Writers Alley (about all writers "need" to do - and encouragement to deal with it)

Blogging and Copyright Issues by Sherrinda Ketcherid at the Writers Alley (places to find free graphics/pix for your blog posts!)

Should Unpublished Novelists Be Platforming? By Rachelle Gardner at her blog (This SO encouraged me)

Yeah- they're all craft posts this week (and two from the same site! Gotta love those Alley Cats!) but I think we can all learn from them - even the nonwriters.

Hope you enjoy these!

Traveling Rough Roads With God's Strength
