#WQWWC – Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Survival”

It’s time to join in the “Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge,” co-sponsored with Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes, right here on SilverThreading.com and myself, Silver Threading!

Please use #WQWWC on Twitter so we can retweet you.

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! BUT WAIT!

If you like the OLD Writers Quote Wednesday where you selected a quote and talked about the author of the quote you CAN still do that. The quotes are a pathway to find inspiration in your writing. You can write whatever you would like as long as you include your quote with your piece. You can write poetry, music, share songs, write flash fiction…


NOW it’s 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!

This week’s theme is survival, or any variation of the word: survivor, surviving, etc.

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.

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 FotoflexerPicmonkeyCanva, 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!


For my quote, I am using the above video of Gloria Gaynor singing, “I Will Survive.”

Here is my contribution for the theme of survival, a haiku I wrote last year:

Now it’s your turn! Show me your interpretation of survival!

  9. Ahh, I’ve missed Writer’s Quote Wednesday in my absence from the blog-o-sphere. And what a theme for me to return to: Survival. I shall return with my submission! Thank you as always, Colleen for helping to run this awesome event 🙂

      Judy nailed that… I was so caught up in the tune, to notice the haiku at first. However, I am sitting with that tree and watching my own leaves fall…. <3

  12. This sounds really challenging like the word survival but we all have to survive don’t we?

    I’ll get around to doing this.

    Well done, Silver Threading.
