#Writer’s Quote Wednesday & #BeWoW – A Month of Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa Quotes: Reverend, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

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.

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.

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. I use 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!

And

Happy Kwanzaa!

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! Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa have begun or are just around the corner!
Are you ready?

We have 3 more Wednesdays in December, so let’s celebrate each Writer’s Quote Wednesday week by finding quotes from authors about Hanukkah, Christmas, or Kwanza.

This is a great way to get in the groove of the season and showcase some great holiday writing talent!

At Kwanzaa – A Celebration of Family, Community, and Culture (the official website), we learn about the celebration of Kwanzaa in the words of Dr. Maulana Karenga:

“As an African-American and Pan-African holiday celebrated by millions throughout the world African community, Kwanzaa brings a cultural message which speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense.”

Kwanzaa is a celebration of family, community, and culture. It is celebrated from December 26th through January 1st. To commemorate this deeply spiritual holiday, I found a quote that represents the spirit of all people:

I find it striking that all of the cultural and religious celebrations held in December celebrate the same things: faith, peace, love, family, tradition, and a strong sense of unity in beliefs. It just goes to show that we are all after the same things in our pursuit of happiness. It makes our world just a tiny bit smaller, don’t you think?

Don’t forget to join Ronovan and me by sharing a holiday quote that means something special to you!

  1. You hit the nail on the head when you say, “I find it striking that all of the cultural and religious celebrations held in December celebrate the same things: faith, peace, love, family, tradition, and a strong sense of unity in beliefs.”

    There are many more similarities between all of the cultures and religions and non-religions on this planet than there are differences. Let’s all come together to celebrate those similarities, rather than destroy ourselves by fighting over a few differences.

    John Lennon’s song, “Imagine”, says it all.

    • I so agree, Stephanie. Happy Holidays is inclusive of all the religious celebrations in December. To me, and this is just my opinion, Merry Christmas is only for the Christian Holiday, much the same as Happy Hanukkah. Too much fuss about what celebration you follow. We should celebrate all in the same way. I am Buddhist and try to be respectful of all cultures and traditions. I have Happy Holidays posted at the top of the blog just for that reason. Thanks for such a great comment. ❤
