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!

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.

You have from this Wednesday until the following Tuesday to participate! Woo HOO!

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!

WQWWC fantasy theme

This week’s theme is “fantasy,” or any variation of the word: FANTASY!

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!



My contribution to the genre of “fantasy,” is a poem I wrote for my novel, The Swamp Fairy. I hope you will enjoy it!


“The Fairy Guardian”

Pink fairy bells tremble

in the early morning breeze,

a tinkling sound that is sure to please –

the Gods high above looking down

foretelling the tales of the swamp fairies;

their cocoons all nestled in Live Oak trees

that swirl and dangle high up in the leaves.

Spider web lace dances in the sun, as

myriad tree reflections sparkle as one –

shimmering in the watery depths redone.

Watch as the noble nymphs of the Naiad Clan

gather to honor the exalted

fairy guardian of their fraternity.

All hail to Abby!

The prophecies ring true!

The sacred heart stone

will guide her through.

Stories will be written of the amber

haired beauty, whose

uncommon courage led her to become

the young fairy guardian

who saved the slough from the evil one.

  15. Lovely poem! I agree with the quote from Lloyd Alexander. All fiction tells a truth about humanity. In my opinion, the farther the writing goes from reality, the more truthful it becomes.

    The more we try to create new realms and beings the more apparent it becomes that all the made up monsters and fairies are just plain people in disguise.

  29. Love your fairy poem! Oh, this is tempting, you’ve given me an idea Colleen, perhaps a fantasy poem too!!

  30. Thank you for this! I’ve never considered that perspective but it’s true!

    • The best thing about writing fantasy is that you get to create. You are not merely writing what you have seen or experienced. You get to create what you want to experience. 😉 Good luck! Write something awesome! <3
