Writer’s Quote Wednesday, “Dream Writing” 2015-3

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.


This year I want to 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 is my quote for the week:

Awake Dreaming

As a writer, I find that I am doing some of my best work because I am dreaming while awake.  I have changed my way of thinking.  I am expanding my horizons and going where my keyboard has never gone before.  I am amazed by the results.  The best thing about being a writer is our ability to CREATE what we want with our words.  That sounds powerful to me.

    1. Many famous authors (Dean Koontz being one) admits to his flashes of brilliance. That is what I feel like. The idea comes to me in a flash. Many times I have dreamed about it beforehand. Is it that way for you also?


  1. The quotes featured here are brilliant Colleen, and you are to be congratulated for your ideas. I LOVE your challenge!
    Please bear with me whilst I sort out my blog, I don’t have much free time, and the learning curve with .org is a nightmare!
    Please know that I love and appreciate your work – and of course your challenge. I will join you again as soon as I can hun. 💞
