Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Sue Vincent

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. <3

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.

Ronovan, from Ronovan Writes and I have joined forces! He has been linking his #BeWoW blog share (Be Wonderful on Wednesday) now to include: Be Writing on Wednesday. If you would like to combine both posts feel free to do so and link them to my post. I will make sure and add you to the quote wrap-up I do each Tuesday. Please make sure and check out Ron’s blog for more writing inspiration and motivation!

Author, Sue Vincent

This week, my quote is from one of my very own favorite authors here on WordPress, Sue Vincent. Sue is a faithful contributor to Writer’s Quote Wednesday and has shared many inspiring quotes with all of us. This quote was part of her post last week called, “Impossible Things.” Click here to read her post.

“All writers rely on memory to create the worlds within their books, just as we all rely on it to interpret the world as we traverse each day. But to remember that which you have not yet seen… and believe impossible things? There, of course, lies total creative freedom… a reality unarguable and a unique experience from which only you can write.”
– Sue Vincent

As a writer and avid reader of fantasy novels I found Sue’s quote explained how I feel every time I take pen to paper. It is true creative freedom to share my unique ingenuity with my readers of worlds that only I have seen and devised in my head. Our fantasy worlds take the reader on a journey they have never traversed before. Thank you, Sue, for your eloquent words.

Meet Sue:

“Sue Vincent is a Yorkshire born writer currently living in the south of England, largely due to an unfortunate incident with a map, a pin and a blindfold. Raised in a spiritually eclectic family she has always had an unorthodox view on life, particularly the inner life, which is often reflected in her writing, poetry and paintings.

She maintains a popular blog, http://www.scvincent.com and is currently owned by a small dog who also blogs and whose own book, “Notes from a Small Dog,” is a bid to raise funds to buy an automatic tennis ball launcher.


Sue lived in France for several years, sharing a Bohemian lifestyle and writing songs before returning to England where the younger of her two sons was born. She began writing and teaching online several years ago, and was invited to collaborate with Dr G Michael Vasey on their book, “The Mystical Hexagram: The Seven Inner Stars of Power” (Datura Press).

Since then she has published a number of books, beginning with “Sword of Destiny”, a magical tale set in the ancient landscape of Yorkshire. Her retelling of the Egyptian myths, “The Osiriad”, came shortly afterwards along with the Triad of Albion – “The Initiate”, “Heart of Albion” and “Giants Dance” in collaboration with Stuart France. These books tell a factual tale in a fictional manner, that is at once a journey into the landscape, myth and iconography of Albion and the story of a growing and rather oddball friendship.

France and Vincent are now working on the last of the three books in the Doomsday series.

  6. ok, although this isn’t in a post, I have to share this with you. Someone shared it with me and I adored it, and it was relevant for something personal I did this week…

    “Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear; the brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all” Meg Cabot.

    I think THAT is an amazing quote. So motivational and inspiring.

    I love quotes. I think I will have to look for one each week to share – is it ok to share in your comments?

    • Absolutely! I will add them in the wrap-up. While I am going to be moving, etc. the next few months Ronovan from Ronovan Writes will be helping me with the wrap-up. So, if you see him posting from my blog don’t panic. I must that your quote is really good motivation to just get out there and write. I love it, Sacha. I am leaving you in my WQW post with that link back to you and how to do photo quotes. 😉 <3

      • I know I noticed that – I am so honoured – the link back is also an awesome reminder for me to participate 😀 Now I will never forget. I have to admit, I am a bit swamped at the minute, struggling to keep up with everything. sigh. Ohh a move sounds very exciting – where are you going to? That’s so lovely he is going to be helping 😀

        • We are moving from Pensacola, Florida to Colorado Spring, Colorado. A huge move. Mellisa Barker-Simpson will be helping me on my blog for a couple of weeks too. We are leaving (driving) on Tuesday to go and buy a new house in Colorado. Once I get back I have to pack, etc. then we will be on the road again. Lots of sporadic WIFI between motels, etc. No worries. If you think to add a quote in the comments go ahead. Life before blogging. <3

  7. Thanks for introducing Sue Vincent. She is a remarkable and interesting person!

  11. I very much enjoyed the quote and your profile of Sue Vincent. I am not a fiction writer, but I am curious about the projects my fellow bloggers are into–reading a post like this has a special interest for me as it is about somebody I follow in my blogging world.

  14. Is it ok to be jealous? Of course it must be, because she is a wonderful blogger whose output is both prolific and proficient. There are somethings that you don’t want to see clogging up your inbox but another Daily Echo post isn’t one of them. There’s an advert doing the rounds over here, the tag line of which is ‘be more dog’. I think, for bloggers ‘be more Sue’ might be nearer the mark though Ani might have something to bark about that.

  15. https://thoughtsandentanglements.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/wednesday-writers-quote/

    I really like this idea of quoting writers. Link to my entry is above.

  16. Oh I love this quote! Reminds me of the White Queen in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass. When Alice declares one can’t believe impossible things, the Queen replies: “I daresay you haven’t had much practice. When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

    Ever since I read that, I make an effort to believe impossible things every day 🙂

    • Lisa, that was so funny that you added that Lewis Carroll quote because Sue had that as part of her quote last week. Through the Looking Glass has always been one of my all time favorite books. Carroll’s imagination still boggles my mind today! <3 I can attest that the impossible happens on a daily basis! 😀

  17. I really enjoyed this week’s post, as usual. All these great entries inspired me to throw my hat into the ring finally:

    • Thanks, Van. I agree. Sue’s writing enthrals me daily. I love her historical tours, and her poetry and prose are simply fabulous. I love when I can connect with a writer’s personality through their words. 💗☺

    And it just goes to show how valuable these challenges can be.. that ‘about’ page is in dire need of updating 🙂 The Doomsday series is done and a new series, Lands of Exile begins very shortly 🙂
