Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Les Brown

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 (this post) 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.

Let’s end Writer’s Block once and for all!

My quote for today is simple logic. Don’t give up. Keep working towards that goal… Just keep writing!

  1. I love this quote, Colleen. I just didn’t know the author. It has been all over the internet and I get it often without a signature. I also liked the other ones you shared. It is a morning boost. I think I am ready to stat my day!
    Thank you so much. I wish you a fantastic day, shooting for the moon, enjoying the stars and…forget the laundry!

    1. Lucile, today will be the best day for you! I just know it. This was the first time I found this quote with Les Brown as the author too. Nice to know. The laundry is a constant joke in our house. We had 5 kids and laundry was my most hated chore. It still is! LOL! 😀


          1. I will do that Lucile. Tomorrow will be an especially good day for you. I can feel it. ❤ Eight! Oh my!!! I would be bald headed with eight, instead of grey-haired​! LOL. Bless your mother. ❤


    1. I had a heck of a time maneuvering around your blog. I tried to click on the posts and it would not let me. So, I grabbed the only one it would let me use. I have no idea why this happened, but there have been many glitchy things with WP lately. My apologies​. ❤

      1. Oh, dear. That’s not good. It seems that WP is changing a lot of things lately, which is confusing how we use the platform. 😦

  2. I love this quote, and always enjoy the fun facts you add about the author. Thanks for the inspiration – I’m not giving myself the chance to stop writing. I’ve signed up for a project which leaves me with little choice. I don’t know if that’s crazy or clever…maybe a little of both 😀

        1. My first draft was an outpouring from my heart. I had a good friend look at it and she gave me some pointers. Then, I began to research and step back from what I had written. Then, I started writing again in a totally different direction. Now, I know that I am doing better. Each genre that you write has a formula or plan that really helps to stick to. I found that so comforting. I am writing a YA novel and found this website to be fantastic for advice: http://www.betternovelproject.com/blog/. Maybe it will help you too. ❤


  3. Been crazy week here for just small annoying reasons like my new laptop temporarily crashing on me when I had work to do and my notes were inside it. I was so frazzled last night I forgot to provide a link in the comments for my WQW post. Here it is. https://fromthestickstothebricksandbackagain.wordpress.com/2015/09/02/wqw-douglas-noel-adams-dna/

    I think I’m going to go shoot for the moon. Great quote.
