"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 30

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!

Three Big Takeaways from the My Book Therapy Storycrafters Retreat by Lindsay Harrel at The Writers Alley (about some great writing/plotting advice)

Is There Room at Your Inn? By Lisa Mikitarian at her blog (about loving the church and homelessness and what we can do)

Offering Representation - One Story By Wendy Lawton at Books and Such (about one person's fairy tale story)

He really does answer (but of course we knew that) by Andrea Mitchell at Under Grace and Over Coffee (about a perspective change I need as much as she does)

Hope these posts bless you. I know they did me!
