Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Romance”
Welcome! This is an open invitation to join in on our blogging event called the “Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge,” co-sponsored with Ronovan, of Ronovan Writes, and myself.
Ronovan and I have decided to change it up! Spring is in the air and it is time for something different! We have retired BeWow (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!
Each week we will include a theme for anyone who needs additional inspiration. You don’t have to follow our theme if you don’t want to. It is optional.
In fact, Ronovan and I will alternate each week with a themed prompt post written on Silver Threading. This will give you a different perspective weekly to keep your inspiration flowing. Make sure and join us. You never know what we will come up with!
Silver says this week’s theme is about: “ROMANCE.”
So what do you do?
You select a quote that inspires you. Then, write a short piece of flash fiction or poetry to share with us all using the quote either in your story or as the title of your masterpiece. You can include photos, photo quotes, or anything else that helps to highlight your quote.
Are you ready to join in?
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, we will post the prompt and all you have to do is take part! You have from that Wednesday until the following Tuesday night to share your creativity inspired by a quote. We will share your posts on social media for added exposure.
Each week, we will include a link to the previous week’s post so that you can go to the links and comments to see all the inspiration that was generated.
Please copy the badge above and include it on your own post. Tag your post on your own blog as “Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge,” 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 our weekly prompt 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.
A Shattered Romance
I knew when you walked away it would be hard to see you again –
ever in that same way.
I cried when you made the choice to leave,
my heart shattered and defeated.
I let you go like silken strands slipping from my waiting arms
billowing in a heavy breeze.
I felt your essence depart as my heart tried so hard to cleave
to the broken remnants of our love.
I knew our time had passed, our days were gone. We were through.
I sighed and let the memories of you flow like a gentle rain
through a fog of tears and forever pain.
“That’s the thing about love.
It demands your heart to be broken.”
Thanks for stopping by to be part of our new writing challenge. I know you will love how your creativity flows!
