Welcome! This is an open invitation to join in on my blogging event called, Writer’s Quote Wednesday. This is your chance to highlight your favorite author’s quotes that give inspiration to you as a writer. By sharing your quotes, we will all gain insight and inspiration to propel us forward in our writing careers.
Be ready to participate with videos and words, photos, and any other media you care to share. I would love to hear some quotes spoken or even sung! Please make sure and give credit to the author of the quote. If it is an image quote you found on the internet, please say where you found it.
There are no rules to follow. Either create your own sayings (because after all, we are all writer’s here) or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration. Just make sure that credit is given for other’s work. You can use Fotoflexer or Picmonkey, or any other program that you wish to make your own images.
Each Wednesday, I will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate! You have from that Wednesday until the following Monday night to post your quotes. That will give me time to do a weekly wrap up and the new quote for the following week. On Tuesday I will post a Weekly Recap of the past week’s quotes with links back to your blogs.
I will share your images on social media for added exposure. Copy the badge above and include it on your own post. Tag your post on your own blog as “Writer’s Quote Wednesday,” so we can find the posts in the reader.
On your own blog post do a ping back to this post and make sure to “like” or “comment” on everyone else’s post. A ping back is when you embed (or copy) the http:// address of my weekly prompt into your own blog post.
Make sure to check my weekly prompt to see if your entry is there. You can copy the http:// address of your blog post and include it in the comments section of my original weekly prompt if that works better for you.
If you do not do a ping-back, please post a comment on this post with a link to your post so I can find your quote. Please only post to this prompt post. Thanks so much.
Get creative and have fun!
My quote this week is from President Theodore Roosevelt:
When I saw this quote, it immediately jumped out at me. I am part of everything I have ever read! The truth in this statement startled me with just how truthful it was. I have been reading since I was in first grade. I excelled at reading and have always loved it. I was a shy child and did not have many friends. Books became my friends, and I read them many times. They were my salvation in a lonely world.
Do you remember the Bobbsey Twins? You can find all 12 volumes for sale on Amazon here. When I was young, I read and re-read these books many times. Nancy Drew was another of my favorites. Little House on the Prairie, Heidi, Misty of Chincoteague, the list goes on, and on. In High School I remember I took a creative writing class for a new genre called, “Science Fiction!” I graduated in 1976, which I guess is a long time ago by today’s standards. We read Arthur C. Clark’s, “Childhood’s End,” as our main book for the semester. I remember my teacher was so excited, because we were entering into an era of reading and writing like no other time before us. Thinking about that now, brings a smile to my face.
I have absorbed the writings of countless authors, and all of them have given me something of themselves through their writing. I am, who I am today, because of great writers! I salute them all! Thank you.
How about you? What quote inspires you? Join in and let me know!
Thanks for dropping by to see what I am up to. I look forward to seeing you later,
