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.
Let’s get more in-depth with the quotes and the author of the quote, by adding names of books, poetry, and music to the mix. Tell something about the author to engage us with the quote.
A quote from a piece of music is just as inspiring as a quote that you read in a book. You can provide images of music with the words, or a portion of a song with an image. Get creative!
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!
This week I would like to share a quote that pertains specifically to writing by Katherine Neville:
This is a quote that everyone should have hanging by their computer as a reminder to themselves that they must keep writing. We all have self doubts about our writing, who doesn’t? I believe those doubts are what make us great. Those doubts make us work harder, and they make us realize that nothing comes easy in this life. You must work at becoming a success every day.
Have you ever noticed how if you don’t write for a few days you feel fidgety, like something is just not right? If that happens to you, it is because you have the heart of a writer beating strong in your body. That need to write, explain, describe, expound… that is your true essence! Don’t fight it! Take Katherine Neville’s advice: Keep writing! No one can stop you, but you!
Katherine Neville is an American author who specializes in adventure novels. She currently has four top-notch novels found on her personal website: Katherine Neville.com: “The Eight,” “The Fire,” “The Magic Circle,” and “A Calculated Risk.” Here is the link to her Goodreads page also. I have not read any of her novels however, I do intend to. If you have read her books let me know what you think in the comments.
There will be NO Writer’s Quote Wednesday next week. However, I will post the Wrap-Up from this week next Tuesday. I am going to take some time off to spend with our daughter and two grand daughters who are here for their spring break. I will be back on April 5th, 2015!
What quote inspired you this week? Join in and share it with all of us!
Thanks for popping in for a visit. I look forward to seeing all of you again!
