Finds for Fridays: July 20

  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 I 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!

Four Basic Steps for Research by Michelle Ule at Books and Such (about research methods for all that stand the test of time)

How To Identify E-Reader Addiction by Jeannie Campbell at The Character Therapist ( I may be in denial. Are you?? hehe - TOO funny!)

Ten Tips for Better Characterization by Maureen Lang at the ACFW Blog (about just what it says)

An Open Letter to the Buried by Billy Coffey at What I Learned Today (about what God's doing through us when we're overwhelmed)

A Writing Lesson From the Movies by Terry Burns at From the Heart (about putting on the "director's hat")

Hope these posts bless you. I know they did  me! Thanks for stopping by.

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