#Writer’s Quote Wednesday (on Tuesday) & #BeWoW – Yecheilyah Ysrayl

Welcome!  This is an open invitation to join in on my blogging event called, “Writer’s Quote Wednesday” and Ronovan Writes event called, “Be Writing on 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!

I am posting early this week so that you can link to the post in case you are traveling or going out-of-town to be with family. Happy Thanksgiving!

Are you ready to join in?
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 pingback 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 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!

This week, I want to share a quote from a fellow blogger and author, Yecheilyah Ysrayl. There is something so satisfying to me when you get to know a writer through their work. I have been reading Yecheilyah’s blog, Pearls before Swine, (and her books) for over a year now and I am always amazed at how profound her writing is. There is not a single day that something she writes does not reach out and grab me!

This week, it was on her Writer’s Quote Wednesday post from 11/18/15, click here to see the post:

Yecheilyah’s words really got me to thinking about my own writing. The old adage, “Write what you know,” seemed to take on new meaning. For it is through the living of life that our words are able to leap from the pages and speak to others.

Writing is a desire to create and share. I like to think I am a bit of an entertainer when I pen my words to the world. I use my imagination, yes, but I draw on many of my own experiences and those of people I know. Even when I am creating magical places in my mind, there is still a root of reality to each experience I write about. I want my readers to feel my world and experience it first hand with me.

Some of my best writing inspiration has come to me when I am cleaning or doing some mundane chores (laundry comes to mind). It is as if the commonplace activity frees up something in my subconscious mind and I let my imagination roam at will.

How about you? Where does your good writing come from?

      1. I will post the link when I get it. It was fantastic. It is 8 months since the last live interview and lots of really crazy lessons during that time. I must have developed a lot of it. And It went fantastic. I was relaxed, had fun, it was like a coffee chat and I think with some interesting insights. She already asked me if I want to be back again….haha… would be the 3rd time at her show. 🙂

    1. Greg, thank you so much for your kind wishes. Guess what we bought? A snow blower! LOL! More snow on the way. I will share photos so you can see. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family also. We are having pizza and playing Wii. I made pumpkin brownies and we should have a great day! Our daughter and granddaughters visited a couple weeks ago. We had our Thanksgiving with them then. ❤

      1. Oh, I’m anxiously awaiting the snowblower-action! 🙂

        And thank you, Colleen, for the well wishes for my family. I’m cooking the whole (our) traditional Thanksgiving meal, working on some of it today and the rest tomorrow. Pizza is on the menu for us tonight, too; no way I’m cooking dinner with all I’m doing for tomorrow! LOL

  1. I have a bone to pick with you. I’m “following” you and have been doing so for sometime now. How come I never get any email notifications from you? I am so self-involved that I forget to check out the blogs and musings of others that I have an interest in. I tried to sign up for your email notification, but your site won’t let me. Do you have me blocked? If you so, you ain’t the first one. So there!!!!

    By the way . . . Merry Christmas.
