Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Laughter”

Welcome to the  open call for anyone who will dare to share what they care with all the others in the “Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge.” Been here before? Click HERE to skip to Example and Challenge.

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

Brought to you by the ever lovely goddess of the fairies and silver tress polish, Colleen, right here on SilverThreading.com, and myself, the truly, the madly, the deeply, writer of romance, Ronovan of Ronovan Writes, and those other sites mentioned in the image below. (I have no other life than writing. Seriously.)

Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge

A quick reminder, use #WQWWC on Twitter and some of us might be able to retweet you. It’s not a must, just a suggestion.

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.

It’s an Odd Week number so that means I’m the host. Hmm, I wonder if Silver did that on purpose. “Oh, Ronovan, I’ll go first so we see how it runs.” Mhmm.

So what do you do?

You select a quote that inspires you based on the THEME. 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, 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.

This week’s theme is about:

“Laughter”

Ronovan Hester Laughter

“To jealousy, nothing is more frightful than laughter.”
Françoise Sagan
Françoise Sagan Laughter Quote Image
From Wikipedia: Françoise Sagan (French: [sagɑ̃]; 21 June 1935 – 24 September 2004) – real name Françoise Quoirez – was a French playwright, novelist, and screenwriter. Hailed as “a charming little monster” by François Mauriac on the front page of Le Figaro,[1] Sagan was known for works with strong romantic themes involving wealthy and disillusioned bourgeois characters. Her best-known novel was her first – Bonjour Tristesse (1954) – which was written when she was a teenager.

 

Each time I host I end up searching for quotes twice. I chose laughter and went on my merry little way. It didn’t take long to pick the feature quote of the theme. The quote above hits home for me. It’s something I tell my son a lot. You see, he’s a gifted student, part of a University talent search program, first chair trumpet his first year playing, and is great at sports. Needless to say, jealousy pops up a lot. On top of that, he’s a good looking kid. Of course, right?

Bullies and jealousy don’t know how to handle laughter. Laughter weakens them. Some my haul off and punch you, but that’s what a stupid person does. You say they have a high IQ? It doesn’t matter the IQ, it’s what they do with it that makes them intelligent or not. Anyone can tell you a law, that doesn’t mean they follow it.

  1. Hi Colleen & Ronovan! So I have a quick question about WQWWC. Is there a difference between this and Writer’s Quote Wednesday? Are you hosting two different events now or basically combining into one? I’m sorry if this was addressed before, I’m still trying to catch up on things I’ve missed during my hiatus from the blog-o-sphere >_ https://jademwong.wordpress.com/2016/04/15/writers-quote-wednesday-a-few-things-that-make-me-laugh/
