#Writer’s Quote Wednesday & #BeWoW – J. K. Rowling

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 am still looking for one of our regular participants who will do the weekly wrap-up for me. It is a great way to bring traffic to your blog! Please let me know in the comments if you are interested.

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. <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 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 New Year everyone! Welcome to our first 2016 Writer’s Quote Wednesday! Can you feel the magic? I can! This year is wide open for all of us to attain our wishes and goals. All we have to do is actively participate. It doesn’t get any better than that!

My love of all things magical is never far from my thoughts. I want to experience the magic and joy in life everywhere. I could not think of a better place to start than with the enchanted words of J. K. Rowling. (Click her name to visit her website).

I have read and reread the Harry Potter series so many times I cannot tell you the exact number of times that I have read each book. I do know that my love of fairies, elves, and great fairy-tale kingdoms go back much further than that. The Chronicles of Narnia, Charlotte’s Web, Watership Down, Lord of the Rings, and countless other books helped to fuel my imagination in all things mystical and magical.

Rowling created a mystical world of wizards and witches that spoke to so many of us, young and old alike. The power behind her writing is simple story telling. She writes the journey of a hero much like a modern day fairy tale. We all can find something to relate to in regards to the characters in the series. That is the power of magic. We have it inside of us all. The power to create characters that reach out and touch us to our very core. That is MAGIC!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is coming November 2016!

GET READY!

 

Don’t forget to share what your special brand of magic is with a quote from a writer that inspired you!

      1. With every day and everything that happens on our way something within gets watered and grows until one day it comes to the surface. So many dormant seeds within indeed, Colleen! And we never get it done discover ourselves new!

  1. How true! The magic is always within us but I also love reading for the magic within the books – a whole new worlds easily accessible, adventures, fun, sadness, the list is endless. May we all find a bit of magic in our days and yes, within us! Colleen, I have posted a ‘quote’ blog for this coming Wednesday and added your link to this page. I’m not sure if that is what you need? Still trying to get the hang of pingback etc. This is the link to my post for your Writer’s Quote Wednesday if you wish to add: https://annikaperry.wordpress.com/2016/01/10/attention/

  2. Hey, thanks for reminding me that I haven’t bothered you in a while — my favorite silver-headed beauty. Anyway, I’m a writer and I have one thing I say all the time. In fact I’m known for it in this neck of the woods. My quote is, “Can you spare a few dollars until my next royalty check arrives?”
