Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Lewis Carroll

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.

Fellow blogger, Sacha Black has an excellent tutorial on how to make photo-quote images. Click here to learn how to make exciting images with your own photos and how to add words.

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.

Please be aware that I do NOT receive any emails from WordPress any longer. I am using the reader exclusively. Please make sure that your pingback works on my Wednesday post so that I can find you. ❤

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 (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.

Between house showings, Doctor’s appointments for my husband, and vet appointments for Sugar and Spice… I am very late!

Which brings me to one of my favorite storytellers of all time, Lewis Carroll.

My quote this week is perfect since I feel like a mad hatter running around crazy, willy-nilly, to and fro! Like I explained last week, it has to be the influence of the pending mega-moon and eclipse that will occur this Sunday, September 27th, 2015.

How is your week going?

Make my day and share a quote that really got to you this week!

    1. I am well! Thanks, Olga. My sweet husband Ron had a procedure yesterday and he is feeling in good shape today. The dogs had to go to the vet for their annual shots and checkup. They will be 12 years old in January and are starting to age. Sigh… the inevitable march of time. It is busy, but I like that! Hope all is well with you, Olga. ❤

  1. ooh lovely, thank you so much for the lovely mention. I actually found a quote this morning as it happens right before I read this post – how funny is that!

    The quote is: There is no one in this whole world you’d criticise the way you criticise yourself. Start forgiving More. Start with yourself.

    How beautiful is that. Very poignant for me too.

    1. I wanted to let you know that I am getting a message on my computer (where the http:// address shows) when I go to your blog that your connection is not safe. I had to go back to your comment from yesterday in order to reply to you. Not sure what that is about, but thought I had better let you know. I am running a scan on my computer. 😦 Thanks for the great quote, though. I can see that you two brothers were truly a “bother” to each other growing up. It must be the impish grins! Well done on your photo with words image too! 😉


  2. Great post Colleen! That is a great and truthful quote. We all have our quirks. I’ve been a bit of a “Mad Hatter” myself this week and couldn’t do my Writer’s Quote Wednesday post. 😦 I will make up for it next week––I hope. 😀 xx


  3. Hope the mad hatter moments calm down a bit Colleen. I will be probably taking a bit of break as I’m doing a scary readalong at the moment, (Halloween style) so just to let you know I may not have the time for WQW, for a while… but I’ll be back..
