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. Do you feel like your writing is getting stale? Are you looking for inspiration to keep writing? Then you have come to right spot!
All you have to do is find your favorite quote. Find something that truly speaks to you. This does not have to pertain just to writing. It can be any kind of quote as long as it made an impact on you. Then, write a post and include your quote.
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. Click the links to go to the programs.
Be ready to take part 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.
Each Wednesday, I will post the prompt and all you have to do is take part! 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. I am sorry if I left anyone off last week. Please tag your posts so that I can find you. ❤
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.
Is the heat getting to you and making you want to howl at the moon? If so, I have the perfect solution! READING! I love to read and I find nothing better to do on this hot days but to get comfortable (under the fan) and read a good book.
It has been said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but in my case it has always been books! My fabulous husband surprised me with these two new additions to my library last week!
I have no idea how I managed not to read, To Kill a Mockingbird all these years! I am enthralled with Harper Lee’s writing style. It should be noted that I live in Pensacola, Florida just down the road from where many of the events in the book take place in Alabama. It makes it all the more meaningful to be this close to that location.

Thanks for popping in! I love seeing all of you!
