Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Wisdom” (MLK, Jr.)

It’s time to join up for the second “Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge,” Co-sponsored by Colleen, right here on SilverThreading.com, and myself, Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes, and those other sites mentioned in the image above. I know I made myself look younger and better, but who wouldn’t if they could? Actually, there wasn’t a template that worked quite right for me. I just went with it. I think I got Silver just right.

Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge

Use #WQWWC on Twitter and some of us might be able to retweet you.

I retired #BeWoW. The idea of #BeWoW was being a positive blogger with Wednesday posts about positive things to counteract all the negativity we see everywhere. This was just for me but became something else. I did hope others would follow suit but never planned it to be a blog share event. Eventually, it expanded to include Be Writing on Wednesday in order to Be Wonderful 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! Want some wisdom on how to get people to perhaps click on your post more often? Check out my blog sometime today and I’ll give you the low down, or as my Ghana friend used to say, the ‘down low’.

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. The point here is to create and share.

To see all the Entries from last week click HERE for the links in the comments of last weeks Challenge Post.

This is my week, and Silver will be back next week to share her theme with you. We thought it would be fun to split the brain power needed. All of you get hosts that are reasonably fresh and fun to play with, so join in!

This week’s theme is about:Wisdom animated gifwisdom ronovan“WISDOM”

So what do you do?

You select a quote that inspires you. Then use the quote in or as the title of:

  • A short piece of flash fiction
  • An original piece of poetry
  • Photography that ACCURATELY interprets your quote
  • And remember you can place your poetry on images as well to enhance the impact of your message.

Are you ready to join in? Where do you get these quotes? Where do you make these images?

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, Picmonkey, or Canva.com (just added this time around), 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 at the top of the post 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.

“Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace. It solves no social problem: it merely creates new and more complicated ones. Violence is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends up defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers.” – Martin Luther King, Jr., Nobel Peace Prize Lecture 1964
Martin Luther King, Jr. Nobel Peace Prize Quote
Click HERE for the audio of his speech at nobelrize.org. (Will open in a new window.)
Do you interpret words into poem or fiction when they speak in this manner to the world situation . . . 52 years later?
I would ask many today to read these words and take them to heart. Look around you and think, “Am I bringing about change through understanding or through fear?”
Are you not certain of your achievement? Ask yourself, “Am I involved in a dialogue or am I delivering a monologue?”
“In the process of progress, if yours is the only voice you hear, you achieve nothing.” – Ronovan Hester

Thanks for stopping by to be part of our new writing challenge. I know you will love how your creativity flows!
