"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: August 17

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!

Children and Service by Patty Wysong at Patterings (about teaching your kids to serve others)

Burnout or Balance by DiAnn Mills at the ACFW blog (about getting your perspective back)

Beyond Busy? 20 Tips to Boost Your Productivity by Janalyn Voigt at AuthorCulture (about just what it says!)

Craft, Story, and Voice by Rachelle Gardner at Books and Such Blog (about the three elements that make a book stand out)

Hope these posts bless you. A nice variety this week. Check them out!

Traveling Rough Roads With God's Strength
