"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 8

  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!

One More Time by Billy Coffey at What I Learned Today (about rejection and our reaction to it)

Do Not Disturb by Kimberly Russell at Roar of a Lioness (about serving)

The Threshold of Risk by Kristi Huseby at Broken and Redeemed (about risk, reward, and faith)

How to Write a Query That Gets Noticed by Michelle Ule at Books and Such (about the five elements of a good query letter)

He Loves Me? He Loves Me Not? He Loves Me! by Catrina Bradley at Jewels of Encouragement (about His neverending, unconditional love)

Pushing Ourselves to Our Limits by Rachelle Gardner at Books and Such (about risk taking and scaring yourself)

Got a pretty good variety this week - lots of good thoughts to ponder. Hope you enjoy these posts!
