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) and will no longer use that meme.
So GUESS what?
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!
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 Ronovan will be back next week to share his theme with you. We thought it would be fun to split the brain power needed each week. All of you get hosts that are reasonably fresh and fun to play with each week, so join in!
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, Picmonkey, Canva, 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.

BOTTOM LINE: Have fun and be creative!
The swamp was alive and bursting with bright green leaves and wildflowers in brilliant shades of red, pink, and creamy white. Abby stood in the middle of the road watching the beauty of a Florida spring unfold around her. Large fat bumble bees hovered above the new blooms, as the sweet nectar beckoned to them to eat from this smorgasbord of delight.
Crimson cardinals and rosy-breasted blue birds flew high in the burgeoning leaves of the trees announcing that spring had finally arrived. The fragrance from all this new life was intoxicating. Abby took in the natural splendor of her surroundings as if she suffered from a thirst that could not be satisfied. The sights and sounds were magnificent.
The most beautiful aroma began to waft through the air. It was a mixture of sandalwood and jasmine, orange blossoms and roses. Abby knew she had only smelled this scent, so beautiful and pure when she was in the presence of the swamp fairies. Abby found herself enchanted by the moment. Excitement coursed through her veins.
Suddenly, a vaporous form appeared drifting within a swirling fog. A tiny being flitting above the waters of the slough. The swamp fairy had long blond hair and glittering wings. Abby watched transfixed as the fairy began to speak in the peculiar way she had where only Abby understood her words.
“Magic is seeing what others do not. Welcome home, Abby Forester.”
Butterflies and moths of every color rose out of a rotted stump buried beneath the murky waters of the swamp. The trees looked alive as the wings of the many creatures fanned in a gentle rhythm. Dragonflies of every color in the rainbow came next. They too filled the leaves of the trees and bushes. Abby closed her eyes. She felt their strength in numbers and felt their unity. A feeling of belonging and overwhelming love surrounded her in an aura of luminosity.
As quickly as it all began, the Swamp Fairy released the butterflies. They rose in a cloud and immediately flew off into the sky. However, Abby gasped when she realized they did not look like butterflies anymore. Instead, they had transformed into translucent beings of light. They were tiny swamp fairies wearing the colors of the spring swamp, clothed in brown, and a brilliant green, the color of new leaves. Wild flowers of every color were twisted in their flowing hair. Golden flecks of light bounced around them like glittering stars in the night.
Welcome to spring in Fairy Swamp.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this introduction to my swamp fairies. <3
