#Writer’sQuoteWednesday & #BeWow – A “Silver” Quote

Welcome!  This is an open invitation to join in on our 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!

My quote this week is all about the “magic” of words. You know what I am talking about. Words strung together like a shiny necklace meeting and joining to form an image in your mind. That image propels you through a story from the beginning to the end. That is the true MAGIC! When your words mean something to the reader you know you have reached them through their hearts.

I can’t tell you how many times I have a read a book where I find myself becoming emotional. I cry, laugh, and even ache with the pain of the words written. It is an experience I would think all authors desire from their readers. I consider it a gift. To evoke emotions like that from a reader signifies a deep bond with the written word.

Friend and blogger, Charles Yallowitz, author of the fantasy series, The Legends of Windemere, once said to me, “Writing fantasy is freeing.”

I pondered his statement for quite a long time. As a student learning the art of the fantasy genre, I realized that what he was talking about was the fact that as a writer you create what did not exist before in your mind with the intention of sharing it with the rest of the world. Wow! I realized how brave you have to be to expose that part of your heart to the rest of the world!

That is where the magic comes in. The Encarta Dictionary defines magic as, “A special, mysterious, or inexplicable quality, talent or skill.” I believe that we word weavers are creating magic with every stroke of our pen, or keyboard, to be more exact.

The magical energy our words create drip with sound and rhythm, conjuring up images that free us from our daily existence. If you think about it most magic spells are done by reciting words. Words have power.

So, the next time you sit down to write just remember you are the magician, the necromancer of words. Use your power wisely!

Magic is why I write. Magic is why I read.


SHARE your MAGIC with the rest of the world!

TELL US ABOUT A QUOTE THAT INSPIRED YOU THIS WEEK!

Thanks for stopping by. Ronovan and I loved seeing all of you!

  15. Beautiful thoughts, quote, and presentation in the open book. This week I didn’t do a usual kind of quote post (or is there such a thing?). My Wednesday post was in celebration of International Year of Pulses.. .I used quotes as a core part of the post, not because it was Wednesday, but because I have discovered with WQW that I enjoy presenting information with quotes. It was also a way of highlighting some of my favourite vegetarian cookbooks. I’ll send my link in a ping.
