Finds for Fridays: August 19 (and JoE)

I'm over at Jewels of Encouragement today, talking about being proactive about "The Golden Rule." Pop over and read what I have to say about Grabbing the Initiative!



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!

Conflict- the most frequently screwed up story element by Scott Eagan at Babbles from Scott Eagan

Relentless Noise by Joy Bach at Life Moments (about the consequences of quiet)

M is for Marshmallows by "Sawa" Harricharan at In Shades of Scarlet (about a great search - with silliness)

Spine-Out Titles by Andy Scheer at From the Heart (about the importance of a book title)

Kill Those Bugaboos by Janet Dean at Seekerville (about stuff in manuscripts to get rid of)

Be sure to stop by these blogs - and subscribe to them so you can be blessed every time they post. Great stuff. Enjoy!
