"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: September 21

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!

In Hiding? by LauraLee Shaw at Faith Colored Glasses (about where I should run)

3 Common Misconceptions About Eating Disorders by Christa Black at The Character Therapist (about someone who's been there. This post amazed me)

A Question That Changes Everything by Michael Hyatt at his blog (about making lemonade from lemons)

What Kind of a God Does That? by Lori Stanley Roeleveld at Deeper with Jesus in Rhode Island (about our incredibly creative Creator)

Nonviewpoint Character Scenes by Cara Lynn James at Seekerville (about writing a scene about a non-viewpoint character. VERY helpful to me!)

An interesting mixture this week, I think - every one of them worth reading. Hope you get the chance! Thanks for stopping by.

Traveling Rough Roads With God's Strength
