"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: July 27

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!

Five Tips to Make Your Synopsis Stronger by Casey Herringshaw at The Writers Alley (about improving that dreaded synopsis - no matter its length!)

The Wounds of a Friend by Kristi Huseby at Broken and Redeemed (about the pain of betrayal and the hope of the Lord)

When the Going Gets Tough by Pepper Basham at The Writers Alley (about encouragement, and why we write)

How Does Your Publisher Make Money by Rachelle Gardner at her blog (about one difference between traditional and vanity publishing that I never thought of)

Hope these posts bless you!
Traveling Rough Roads With God's Strength
