Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Harper Lee

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.

Silver goes nuts during the full moon

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.

This is the best writing advice that I have ever received. Thank you Harper Lee.

At writerswrite.com I found an excellent resource for building a successful character which includes a character profile to help you create characters that make you think! Check them out. They have been helping me.

Here is a great biography which includes a video introducing you to Harper Lee: Biography.com

It’s Wednesday! You’ve got until next Monday! Join in and share with us what quote really spoke to you this week.

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


      1. You’re welcome. But, now that I have made a post of my own in response to Writer’s Quote Wednesday, with a ping back to you, should I delete my re-blog? It seems like duplication on my blog.

        Will this upset you or any of the other followers? If so, I should just leave it.

        Please take a quick look at my blog and let me know what you think.

          1. Erika, So sorry it took so long for me to reply. We had the first of many Dr. appointments for Ron today. More tests on his legs and the veins. Anyway, when I get this book written I will give it to you then. The whole plot is different now. ❤

        1. This is my first novel, Lance. I started out one way, scrapped it and have gone another way. Erika read my first version. This time I have my protagonist 14 years old. That is an age I am more comfortable with. Soon. I am writing and teaching myself as I go. 😀 ❤


  1. To Kill a Mocking Bird is one of my favourite books. My mum and I went to the theatre to see the play, and loved it. It’s a really great quote. Thanks for sharing it, and the information on Harper Lee. The character profile is great – I use something similar 😀

    1. The book is very Southern. I like the charm that Harper Lee brings forth with her words. It really was like that here in the southern United States. This is about the 1950’s or so. I am keeping an open mind about both books. I will keep everyone posted. ❤

  2. Love the quote. Never thought about it much but my favorite books are always the ones that make me think. I remember trying to read To Kill a Mocking Bird in school and finding it difficult. Might give it another go and check out the new one too 🙂

  3. Have you ever read that book “How to kill the mocking bird”? If yes, please suggest. Look interesting : ))) and yes… just read..books can help us grow but make sure they are original not remixed from other books just for the best-selling : )))

    1. I just started reading To Kill a Mockingbird. It is very southern, as in taking place in a historical time in the southern United States. I do like the way Harper Lee writes. I would try reading it if you can. Just remember the context. 😀

  4. Very wise advice from Harper Lee in the quote you chose, Colleen!
    I’m glad you’re enjoying reading her works — and oh, the “howling at the moon” graphic is absolutely adorable! I chuckled out loud when I saw it! You make a cute werewolf 🙂
    Have a great start to your day! Stay cool in this heat!
