Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Roald Dahl

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.

I found another fabulous quote about my favorite subject… magic! I just could not resist sharing it with you all. I am fascinated with the psychology behind the belief in magic. It is through the telling of fairy tales that many of us learn about the special qualities of magic. These stories fuel our imagination. They are also the way we begin to learn about life and the world we live in.

This week, Roald Dahl, one of the best children’s authors there ever was, brings us his thoughts about magic:

This is what I love… seeing magic everywhere, I look. It is that kind of special sight that enables us as authors to recreate our characters and the many places that lurk in the dark recesses of our minds. The magic is there, all you have to do is look at it with different eyes.

  6. Wonderful choice, Colleen. It’s truly inspiring to think that writers can tap into all that magic and create their own, perhaps it’s what allows us to be writers in the first place – we never lose our awe and sense of wonder in the world around us 😀

    • It is interesting that he was rich, yet had such a difficult life. It is the pain that we writers experience that seems to resonate through our own writings. I did not know that about him Vashti. Thanks for sharing. ❤
