#Writer’s Quote Wednesday & #BeWoW – A Month of Christmas Quotes – Laura Ingalls Wilder
Welcome! This is an open invitation to join in on my blogging event called, “Writer’s Quote Wednesday” and Ronovan Writes’ event called, “BeWoW” or “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!
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.
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!
Happy December everyone! It’s that magical, special time of year when snow glistens like diamonds and the cold nips at your nose and toes! Christmas is right around the corner! Are you ready?
This year, since we have 5 Wednesdays in December, let’s celebrate each Writer’s Quote Wednesday week by finding quotes from authors about Christmas.
This is a great way to get in the groove of the season and showcase some great holiday writing talent!
Do you remember the television show, “Little House on the Prairie?” It was one of my favorites many years ago. The stories were always touching accounts of life on the prairies in our American West. Here is a quick video that shows some of the highlights from the hit television series:
DID you know that Laura Ingalls Wilder was an author? I read every one of her books when I was growing up. I always felt such a connection to her because she was born in Wisconsin and made her way west to settle in Kansas. In my family, it was the opposite. My parents left Kansas and settled in Wisconsin! Instant connection… at least that is how I felt when I was 9 or 10 years old!
She is still one of my favorite authors of all time. How fitting then, to feature her in my first Christmas Writer’s Quote Wednesday post for 2015.
