"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: October 19

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!

Where Does Your Story REALLY Start? By Scott Eagan at Babbles from Scott Eagan (about how to determine what chapter 1 should be)

What Really Matters by Yvonne Blake at My Back Door  (about priorities)

Is Venting Biblical? by Jennifer Slattery at Internet Cafe Devotions (a lesson I TOTALLY needed. Toes stepped on for sure)

Why Your Dream Hasn't Come True...Yet by Jessica R. Patch at her blog (about Joseph and God's plans)

Thoughtful About...Nothing Less by Roseanna White at Writing Roseanna (about blessings and appreciation and complaining)

Some very thoughtful posts this week. Praying some of them get YOU thinking too. Have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks, JO. It's a lesson I'm sure I'll have to be retaught often.


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
