Finds for Fridays: June 24


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?

I should mention that the blogosphere was FULL of amazing posts this week. It was hard to choose just a few. This list easily could have been twice - or even three times - as long.

And here they are!

They Aren't All Winners by Linda Glaz at her blog (about reading disappointments - and who the book is for)

Market Mondays - Part Two of Nuke the Slush-Pile by James H. Pence at Reflections in Hindsight (hints about getting your MS in an editor's hands)

No Retiring in T-Ball by Kristi Peifer at Jewels of Encouragement (about sticking with it)

The Makings of a Character by Pepper Basham at The Writers Alley (about developing your characters)

Make Friends, Not Converts by Jennifer Slattery at Jennifer Slattery Lives Out Loud (about REAL brothers and sisters in Christ)

Where Art Thou? by Wanda at The Watered Soul (about where we are, and where I AM)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have time to stop by and read these wonderful posts.
