"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 31

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!

Lying with Dragons (or Sometimes a Story is a Sword) by Lori Stanley Roelveld at Deeper With Jesus in Rhode Island (about children's stories and evil)

The Fire by Laura Lee Groves at The Outnumbered Mom (about struggles and God)

Finding The Strongest Climax by Martha Alderson at Seekerville (about the importance of the end of the book, and plot whispering)

Perspective by Krista Phillips at the Writers Alley (about what REALLY matters)

Hope these posts bless you - thanks for stopping by!
