"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 6

  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!

Woolworth or Tiffany's? by Janelle James at the ACFW Blog (about the power of a few words, and leaving clutter out of your writing)

Summer Memories: The Secret Garden by Sawa Harricharan at In Shades of Scarlet (about a classic and the magic of reading)

Showing C.A.R.E in Your First Chapter by Pepper Basham at The Writers Alley (about necessities in the first chapter)

Will Reading Fiction Turn Men Into Sissies? by Sharon Lavy at WordServe Water Cooler (about the benefits to men of reading ficiton)

Should I Quit Writing? by Terry Burns at From the Heart (about time for writing)
