#WQWWC – Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Farewell”

Hey, EVERYBODY! It’s that time again! 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.

Please use #WQWWC on your post so when we share to Twitter we can retweet you and spread the inspiration.

Welcome!  This is an open invitation to join in on our blogging event called the “Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge!

Here’s who joined us last week:

Here is Ronovan’s post from last week with the theme of unity

Ronovan and I have enjoyed all the creativity that has blossomed from this challenge. There have been fascinating science fiction stories, poetry, and even a song or two!

But as they say, all good things must come to an end. Many months ago, Ronovan agreed to join me in this challenge to give me a break every other week. I can never thank him enough for his friendship! He added a whole new dimension to the fun!

We have had the best time. However, by mutual agreement, this will be our last quote challenge.

I started this challenge, over two years ago and feel ready for a change. Ronovan and I are both working hard on publishing novels. Our paths are leading us in different directions.

If anyone would like to take this challenge on, please do. If not, #WQWWC will pass into the darkness of the blogosphere.

I haven’t given up on challenges… not yet. In fact, next week, I will host my first TANKA TUESDAY, held at Silver’s Coffee Bar (We have tea, too!) on the blog.

This will be a weekly challenge that you won’t want to miss!

Stop by, grab a seat and enjoy a steaming cup of joe! But be ready… you’ll be writing your own Tanka poems!

I’ll see you all next TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2016


So, here’s the deal. If you want to participate this week, please do, and use the theme of “farewell.” I will still retweet your post and stop by and say hello. If not, take a break, and join me in something new, next week.

The past two years have been amazing. People who joined the quote challenge became my friends. On a weekly basis, we boosted each other up and helped to inspire writers to new levels. I am proud of the time we spent together.

I will miss each of you and hope that you will stop by, and say hello often.

Many hugs,

Ronovan & Silver

  1. Hi and thanks for following me. Very pretty blog. Love the quote challenge.
    My Quote: “The most powerful story is the one you tell yourself.” ~unknown~

    • Beautiful quote. That was my last quote challenge. I have moved toward something a bit different. You are welcome to join us for Tanka Tuesdays if you would like. A fun way to get your poetry on! <3

  2. Just back on Sunday so threw myself into some micro, flash, prompty posts and waited with bated breath for wqw, and today came to find my friend Coleen saying farewell.I hope you stop by once in a while at my place, for tea and a chat and I am missing you already. 😇 good luck and thank you.

  5. Hi Colleen: I have fond memories of this challenge as it introduced me to the joy of using quotes. (I haven’t been involved lately only because of time limitations) Many thanks to you and Ronovan for a top notch challenge!!

  6. So long, farewell
    auf Wiedersehen, goodbye

    I leave and heave
    A sigh and say goodbye

    The Sound Of Music – So Long, Farewell Lyrics Oscar Hammerstein II, Richard Rodgers, Irwin Kostal

    Looking forward to your next venture.

  7. Thank you both, Colleen and Ronovan! I haven’t been participating lately (but not due to lack of interest- just lack of time all around) but I have enjoyed the past two years! I look forward to seeing your new challenge! 🙂

  9. I was just thinking what a strange topic “farewell” is and then it hit my what you were saying. I will miss it, but I will take a break this week, I don’t like farewells and try Tanka Tuesdays. Good luck!

  10. This has been one of my favorite challenges, even though I rarely found the time to participate. I,m looking forward to your Tanka Tuesdays.

  17. Oh no! I love writing these post so much! I may continue with them, but I will do it under another name, just because I like writing about authors and sharing their advice and work. Thank for hosting as long as you have and for inspiring me every week. It has meant a lot, and I will definitely stop by from time to time to say hello 🙂


    • Thanks so much, Lisa. I will miss your witty writing. I really need something new to re-engage my creativity. After two years, I need that change. I subscribe to your newsletter so that is a great way to keep up with you. I hope you keep writing about other authors. You do an excellent job. I’ll miss you. Hugs! <3

  18. Awww . . . It’s tough to say farewell to such a fun challenge but I totally understand––writing must come first. Thank you guys for hosting this wonderful challenge and of course we’ll always keep in touch. <3 xx

  19. Oh and where is the link for the Tanka bar….please oh please….

  20. I just joined this challenge last week and was looking forward to more of the same. Sigh, I do understand the need to move on. It is important to pursue the call when it happens. Go for your passion and I will go and meet you at the new Tanka challenge next Tuesday. Thank you so much for providing these challenges. Happy week to you and Ronovan.

  21. Well, as you say, all good things….:)
    I do look forward to Tanka Tuesday though.

    Here is my Farewell post
