Finds for Fridays: June 17


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 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 Opposite of "What Not To Wear" by Lynda Schultz at Grains of Sand (about the righteousness of Christ)

Adapting to Writing Under Contract by Jennifer Hudson Taylor at her blog (about the need for a schedule when you're contracted)

Trust the Catcher by Laura Lee Groves at Outnumbered Mom (about misplaced trust)

Starting the Story Too Soon by Suzanne Hartman at FaithWriters Blog (about a common newbie novelist mistake)

On Quality in Christian Fiction by Katherine B. Hyde at From The Heart (about the centrality of the story vs. the message)

Hope you'll stop by these posts - I'm sure you'll enjoy them as much as I did. Have a great weekend!
