"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 3

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!

The Perils of Procrastination by Nikki Turner at In Truer Ink (a post/reminder I absolutely NEEDED)

Fear, Hit the Road! by Jan Drexler at WordServe Water Cooler (about The Wizard of Oz, Joshua, and being strong)

Is God Wasting Your Time? By Lori Stanley Roeleveld at Deeper with Jesus in Rhode Island (about being a drink offering)

What to Expect When You're Expecting (a book) by Krista Phillips at The Writers Alley (about how getting your book published is like pregnancy. HYSTERICAL!)

Hope you take the time to check these posts out. They definitely blessed me.
