Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Robert Frost


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.

Since I was a little girl, I have loved the poetry of Robert Frost. My favorite poem, “The Road Not Taken,” is something that I have lived in my own life. I always try to choose the road less taken because it is always more about the journey than the destination. Here is a link to poemhunter.com to read the words of the poem for yourself.

What I really enjoyed about Frost’s quote above is that I believe most poets do not really think about being poets. To me, it is an outpouring of emotions and feelings that slip out of me on random occasions. Pure and simple, poetry is the prose of words and letters that form sounds that bring forth emotions from the reader.

  4. Ah, the road not taken is one of my favorites poems too. I literally smiled when I saw the title contained “Robert Frost ” because then I knew, it was going to be good. And…. Best wishes in your moving ☺

  5. I love Robert Frost poems as well. His Road Not Taken and Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening are my favourite.

    Happy Wednesday!

    Oh I love that quote! So next time I start feeling nuts I will remember it’s a condition:)

    I’m not sure this is where I am supposed to put my link. Please asvise if its otherwise:)

  9. Hi Colleen: I love that quote–I am beginning to feel that poetry, like music needs to be continually reclaimed as a form of expression for everyone to enjoy. Of course there are some very gifted people to inspire us, but otherwise it is a form of expression for everyone, as I believe you are suggesting. I won’t be doing a poetic quote this week, but one or two of my favourite poems are in the wings…This week I am linking a post for day one of a 3 Day quote challenge and linking to BeWoW as well.

  10. Hello Colleen! I love poetry and poets. That quote is so true and I think it applies to writers as well. 😉

  22. I echo my appreciation of Robert Frost’s poetry. Your definition of poetry as the” prose of words and letters that form sounds that bring forth emotions from the reader” is spot on.

  24. Thanks for the thought. <3

  25. The first Frost poem I read was in English class in Junior High. Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening was the beginning of a life long love of Robert Frost’s poetry.

  26. Thanks for reminding us of how wonderful Robert Frost was. I taught his “The Road Not Taken” to my adult ESL students, their first ever poem in English. They LOVED it!!
