#Writer’s Quote Wednesday & #BeWoW – C. S. Lewis


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. I will share your images on social media for added exposure. Beginning this week, as part of the Writer’s Quote Wednesday post, I will include the links to the blogs that took part in last week’s post. Time is of the essence in my writing and I find that I need every spare minute I can squeeze out of the day. I no longer have the time to do a separate post for the Wrap-up.

Please copy the badge above and include it on your own post. 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!

“We do not want merely to see beauty… we want something else which can hardly be put into words- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. That is why we have peopled air and earth and water with gods and goddesses, and nymphs and elves.”

~ Author: C.S. Lewis ~

As I write away on my novel like a fiend possessed, I feel a strange affinity with these words from C. S. Lewis. The nymphs have been whispering to me and beckoning me along this writing path I have taken… or maybe I should say the path they have chosen for me.

Many of you know I love the magical aspects of myths and ancient mysteries. These primeval stories open up a part of our subconscious mind that I am convinced helps us channel the ageless tales of our ancestors before us. We are merely repeating what was told to us long ago in a different form.

Many of the earliest stories were told as ways to explain the things in life that mankind could not fathom or understand. That is why many of our myths today feature superheroes and villains that must be conquered in the age old tradition of good vs. evil. We humans are always trying to balance the scales and make it right.

That is what makes us human – that belief in the mystical and unknown. From monsters to delicate fairies we are led along an imaginary pathway into the deepest recesses of our imaginations. It is all about faith and believing that our faith will destroy evil.

Please visit C.S. Lewis.com, the official site, to learn more about this talented author who paved the way for all of who enjoy the spinning of tales.

DON’T FORGET TO SHARE YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE WITH US!

Thanks for stopping by today. I sure enjoyed seeing you all!

  22. One of my fave quotes is by Yohji Yamamoto on the human condition.

    “I think perfection is ugly. Somewhere in the things humans make, I want to see scars, failure, disorder, distortion.”
