Writer’s Quote Wednesday- George Orwell

Writer's Quote Wednesday RonovanGuest Host: Ronovan of RonovanWrites and LitWorldInterviews.com

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.

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.


Yesterday, I suggested as a prompt, in case some did not have a quote in mind, to look to advice on writing, what with National Novel Writing Month in progress. Advice to overcome dreadful things such as writer’s block and corner painting abounds to no end out there in search engine land. I took my own suggestion and today provide to you a quote from George Orwell.

George Orwell Quote

“When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art.’ I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.”—George Orwell

There is a great deal of truth in this quote for many writers. For me, in my works of fiction, and my poetry, I attempt to bring to light a side of a person that is not either believed or understood. People like to pigeon hole a person or gender or even a writing style. I refuse to be one of those who are holed.

I don’t allow genre to interfere with story. I don’t allow traditions to get in the way of truths. I lay everything out for all to see, to interpret, and if they understand, if they enjoy, all the better. If not, I have written the truth.

Writing the truth leaves open those doors others close to hide behind.

  1. […] Charlotte Whitton What I am looking forward to once Florence is able to return to a routine is her sharing her writing and her thoughts again. A frazzled brain can’t share much of anything . . . well except maybe what it’s like to have a frazzled brain and keep going. Interesting that. Florence seems to have an air of, hmm, I am trying to find the right word. Perhaps serenity is the word. I thought of using quotes about serenity today. It takes a lot of strength to find serenity in the world of being an actively participating and functioning mother and daughter. I think we often like to help people achieve serenity when in fact the best way to help is to get out of their way. Please visit SilverThreading.com for more Writer’s Quote Wednesday offerings. […]


  2. […] Like Dr. Trimm says in her quote and I add, its up to you to maximize every potential in that seed that is in your care. Listening to her as she concludes, “If you don’t want to see it in your future, don’t talk about it now.” I’m not sure how I’ve inspired you today, but I’m sure you will find more at Colleen’s treatment room and others like you there #WQW […]
