"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: November 23

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 Baker's Dozen by Nancy Sullivan at Jewels of Encouragement (about cookie-cutter attitudes)

ABCs of Writing: Understand Why You Use Those Writing Techniques by Scott Eagan at Babbles from Scott Eagan (about what it says :D)

Should we Thank God for Ordinary Things? by Dan Walsh at 3 Men Walk Into A Blog (about how thankfulness can change our joy)

A bit of inspiration, and some learning for the long weekend. So thankful for these posts - and those of you who stop by. Thanks!

Traveling Rough Roads With God's Strength

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