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

It’s Ronovan again. Yep, my week to host the challenge. First of all make sure to visit last weeks comments for all those who participated in the Autumn theme.
090616_1710_WQWWCWriter1.png

This week I chose ‘UNITY’ as the theme.

Make sure to put a link to your entry this week in the comments section. You can also do a ping back in your post so people that read your blog can find us and join in the fun. Remember you can do Flash Fiction, Poetry, or pretty much anything as long as you include a relevant quote.

There’s a lot going on in ‘Merica that seems to be pulling us apart. Underneath it we know we’re together, we’re a nation. But we need it to be more than an underneath thing. It seems like big things to overcome: politics, race, gender, and so much more. But it all starts with each person. We each have to overcome how we were brought up and what we were taught to be norms of society. I grew up in a rural Mississippi area, but somehow I ended up one of the least racist people you’ll meet. We had a few African Americans in our school and I got along fine with them, just like I did with the ones I ended up in school with in a city school in Georgia for a while. Maybe I was intentionally going against some of what my family was saying, or maybe there was some underlying truth they were teaching that I picked up on in spite of there occasional verbalizations.
I’ve chosen a few quotes I thought appropriate for the theme. I hope you enjoy.
“Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” Mattie Stepanek
“Where there is unity there is always victory.” Publilius Syrus
“Even if a unity of faith is not possible, a unity of love is.” Hans Urs von Balthasar
“No doubt, unity is something to be desired, to be striven for, but it cannot be willed by mere declarations.” Theodore Bikel
“You don’t get unity by ignoring the questions that have to be faced.” Joe Weatherill
I think that last one is a huge one. So many of us through the years have ducked and covered in hopes the troubles will pass over. And yes, they do pass over, but they come back around and end up scarier the next time.
Much Respect and Love

#WQWWC Theme is “Comedy”! Cathartic or Tragic? Yes.

It’s Wednesday and it’s time for a challenge! And of course since this post looks odd that means it’s Ronovan talking. This week I was dared to use Sensuous as the theme but all the quotes I could find were less than appropriate, although oddly enough I could apply all of them to my desire for food. I may need to speak to my therapist about that one.

Check out all the entries for last week’s theme of Strength by clicking HERE and visiting the comments for the links.

Anyway, this week the theme will be . . .

COMEDY!

Has it been used before? I don’t know. Does it matter? No it doesn’t. Two years ago I wrote an article on my site RonovanWrites.WordPress.com titled I am a Robin Williams. The outward signs of joy, humor, the life of the party with wit abounding. Inside I hated existing. Thoughts like that still come to mind but as I like to say, “As long as I am aware of the fact I am having a problem, them I’m good.” That works for me, but not everyone. It also helps that I write novels. I can take out frustrations there or live out fantasies.

Now for my quotes, and they are most appropriate:

“Comedy can be a cathartic way to deal with personal trauma.” Robin Williams
“Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.” Charlie Chaplin
Arguably two of the greatest comedic actors ever with some similar thoughts. It’s often said that out of tragedy comes the greatest comedians. I’m not sure I’ve read about a comedian that had a great life all the way through, and rarely a great beginning at all.
Much Love and Much Respect

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

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, Silver Threading!


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!

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

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…

SHOW US YOUR CREATIVITY!

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 the 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!

In fact, Ronovan and I 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.

Here is the link to last week’s post from Ronovan.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR BLOGS TO FOLLOW… I have included the entries from last week with the theme of “Miracles” (Please click on their name to visit their blog to read their contribution) (It’s cool when I can just copy the pingbacks :D)

Wikipedia shares:

James Anthony Froude FRSE (/ˈfruːd/ frood[1][2]) (23 April 1818 – 20 October 1894) was an English historiannovelistbiographer, and editor of Fraser’s Magazine. From his upbringing amidst the Anglo-Catholic Oxford Movement, Froude intended to become a clergyman, but doubts about the doctrines of the Anglican church, published in his scandalous 1849 novel The Nemesis of Faith, drove him to abandon his religious career. Froude turned to writing history, becoming one of the best-known historians of his time for his History of England from the Fall of Wolsey to the Defeat of the Spanish Armada.[3] Inspired by Thomas Carlyle, Froude’s historical writings were often fiercely polemical, earning him a number of outspoken opponents. Froude continued to be controversial up until his death for his Life of Carlyle, which he published along with personal writings of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle. These publications illuminated Carlyle’s often selfish personality, and led to persistent gossip and discussion of the couple’s marital problems.”

When I first saw the quote from James Froude, above, I knew it was meant for me. I think of myself as a dream writer. Seriously, I dream about my characters and then I find I am able to write about them. That is how my Heart Stone Chronicles – The Swamp Fairy, was created.

Yup, I thought I had my protagonist, Abby Forester all figured out. Then, I started writing and creating… Suddenly, everything I thought I knew about my character changed. She was transformed and molded by the events that occurred in the story. Her transformation was much like the journey many young people take in life. She had to grow and change from her experiences. Abby had to have the strength of character to move her character forward. Abby’s story is a hero’s journey. The same journey I had to take when writing the novel.

Do you ever think about how much strength it takes to write a novel? We writers have a certain fortitude that helps us complete our journey. It’s not really a question of stopping or starting over – it’s all about continuing. Writing becomes a compulsion and something we find we must do. It’s the simple act of writing down one’s thoughts on paper and telling a story. Simple, right?

Wrong. The second quote by William Zinsser is really about the editing process of a novel writing excursion. For me, the initial writing flowed easily. I was able to create an interesting plot with many twists and turns. However, it didn’t take long for me to realize that my writing needed work. It made for some hard reading.

It was at the editing stage where I realized I had issues with grammar. Writing in the third person is hard for me.

Examples.yourdictionary.com says:

Writing in the third person is writing from the third person point of view and uses pronouns like he, she, it, or they. It differs from the first person, which uses pronouns such as I and me, and from the second person, which uses pronouns such as you and yours.”

I really beat myself up over that for awhile. I could have given up, but I didn’t. I reached down deep into my gut and told myself that if I wanted to succeed there were only a couple of ways I could move forward. Get help, and go back and relearn some easy grammar basics.

Believe me – this took strength and fortitude. That is the way it is with writing. It is a gift that tests your strength of character. When your reader cannot connect to your words, you know there is an issue. We write to share a story, to make our reader think and engage with us. We allow them to see into our imagination and to walk with us in the world we have created. Writing is engaging with your readers.

Image credit: Slideshare.net

As my editing process comes closer to completion, I realize I have to let my “baby” out into the world. I have to let other people into the world I have created. I only hope I have the courage and strength to hear what others think!

Thanks for stopping by… Tell me what strength means to YOU!

Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge Theme-“Miracle” #WQWWC

Sup Y’all. It’s me . . . Ronovan. This week I’ve come up with the theme of the week. It’s a miracle we keep doing it and haven’t failed to grabbed something out of thin air. It’s tougher than you think.

If you missed out on reading last week’s entries for the theme of Innocence, click here to go there. And if you are a participant you really should be visiting all your fellow entrants.

062216_1919_WQWWCWriter1.png

It’s easy to join in:

  • Find a quote you like that goes with the theme of the week.
  • Use that quote either in or as the title of some form of writing such as a flash fiction piece, poem, or pretty much anything as long as you include the quote and make sure to note who said it.
  • Then do a Ping Back or paste your URL into the comments of this post so we can all visit you.

This weeks theme is:

Miracle

062216_1919_WQWWCWriter2.png

 

“It’s a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.” Albert Einstein (Google him. There is too much to sum up in a few words.)


Having been a teacher and in the education system for a number of years, I get what Albert was talking about. At least I have a thought about it. The amazing thing is this quote was from so long ago but applies to today so well.

These days students are taught to pass standardized tests. It’s not the fault of a teacher but of the system. Some teachers can still be creative in their approach but in some areas it’s just not that easy. A child isn’t allowed to wonder about something, there is no time given to it. The child is told this is it so just go with it. What Albert feared was the lack of creativity as generations continued. What great things have been missed out on because students are pigeon holed into having to think a certain way? I taught history. If you’ve ever done that you know a big part of history is teaching the wars. What happened around them. That’s what standardized tests are mostly geared to. That’s not how I liked to teach. I liked to link everything together, like a story, so students could understand and retain information. Who read Harry Potter 10 years ago and still remembers most of the story? Think about WWI and what do you remember about that?

Don’t let the world stifle creativity. Encourage your children to think for themselves and ask questions.

Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge Theme-“Passion” #WQWWC

Hello, it’s me again. Ronovan. Yep, it’s my week to host the Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge.

This weeks theme is:

Passion

062216_1919_WQWWCWriter2.png

 

Simple Definition of passion

  • : a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something

  • : a strong feeling (such as anger) that causes you to act in a dangerous way

  • : a strong sexual or romantic feeling for someone

“Follow your own passion – not your parents’, not your teachers’ – yours. Robert Ballard

From Wikipedia: Robert Duane Ballard (born June 30, 1942) is a retired United States Navy officer and a professor of oceanography at the University of Rhode Island who is most noted for his work in underwater archaeology: maritime archaeology and archaeology of shipwrecks. He is most known for the discoveries of the wrecks of the RMS Titanic in 1985, the battleship Bismarck in 1989, and the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown in 1998. He discovered the wreck of John F. Kennedy‘s PT-109 in 2002 and visited Biuku Gasa and Eroni Kumana, who saved its crew. He leads ocean exploration on E/V Nautilus.


Imagine if this quote was acted upon throughout the ages. Or even during our age. Too many of our young feel trapped by where they are. A great deal of that feeling is given by the older generations around them. “This is the way it’s always been.” “It’s tradition.” “Society won’t let us do no better.”

The truth is, society doesn’t care what you do, as long as you aren’t doing it any harm. I had another quote I was going to add and I think it goes along with having a passion and following it. I think it goes especially well with the state of the world today.

“If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.” Benjamin Franklin

Every person should have a passion, but that fire that fuels it can burn out of control and consume anything in its path. We must keep reason in control of the passion to give it direction and keep it on a clear and safe course..

This week’s theme is about:

“Happiness”

Happy Image

There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.
George Sand
From Wikipedia: Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dupin[1] (French: [amɑ̃tin lysil oʁɔʁ dypɛ̃]; 1 July 1804 – 8 June 1876), best known by her pseudonym George Sand (/sænd/;[2] French: [ʒɔʁʒ sɑ̃d]), was a French novelist and memoirist. She is equally well known for her much publicized romantic affairs with a number of artists, including PolishFrench composer and pianist Frédéric Chopin and the writer Alfred de Musset.

There is the joy of love,

Giving it into the hand of your dreams.

There is the joy of being loved,

Having it sift through your fingers and die at the extremes.

#WQWWC – #Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Adventure

So, it’s that time again! Time to get your quote selected so you can come up with a creative story, poem, or whatever else you would like to share about your quote. Remember we have a week so there is no great hurry!

It has been a crazy week! I am sorry for being so late…

Ronovan is in charge this week and he chose the theme of:

“ADVENTURE”

Please make sure to link to Ronovan’s post HERE. He explains how to follow the challenge and gives a link-back to last week’s post so you can see how creative everyone else was. In addition, Ronovan and I share your posts on social media for added exposure! Thanks for joining us.

Here is my contribution for this week on the theme of “ADVENTURE.”

An adventure of a Life Time

It was time to go. Marie placed her suitcase on the curb next to the car. She was nervous, even though it was filled with the required items on the list. Anything else she needed she would just have to get later. The suitcase was a graduation gift from her foster parents. That bit of irony made her smile. In other words, it was time to go.

“Are you ready?” asked Carolyn, Marie’s foster mother for the last year and a half of high school. She hefted the suitcase into the trunk of the car with a grunt.

“I think so,” answered Marie quietly. She looked around at the familiar surroundings that had become her home for the last couple of years. She felt a sadness that made her heart ache while at the same time she felt her heart beat in anticipation of what lay ahead. The decision to leave was the only logical one, she knew. After one last look around the neighborhood, Marie settled into the seat next to Carolyn. Her throat was tight and tears filled her eyes.

Both women were silent, lost in their own thoughts. Marie watched the fleeting images of the city she grew up in fly past the car window. Carolyn reached over and turned on the car radio.

“Nothing like a little music to brighten the situation,” said Carolyn smiling at Marie.

The soft strains of the song “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” wafted through the car. Carolyn laughed. “How appropriate is that?” she asked.

Marie laughed too. What were the chances that song would play today at this moment on her way to the airport, she wondered? It was the kind of moment she knew she would remember the rest of her life. It was a sign, an omen that she was on the right path.

“Now, remember to call me and let me know you arrived safely,” murmured Carolyn.

Marie nodded. “If they let me,” she said with hesitation in her voice.

The freeway exit to the airport loomed ahead. Carolyn took the exit with ease guiding the car into the appropriate lane for departing passengers. She stopped the car in the unloading zone and turned to Marie.

“You will be just fine. This is a brand new adventure, one you will remember the rest of your life,” she said, tears clinging to her eyelashes. Carolyn knew she loved this girl whose parents had given her up to the state. Thank goodness she was able to be there for her, she thought. Foster care was never easy and Marie had been a typical teenager but now it was time for her to make her own way in the world.

Marie nodded and glanced at Carolyn. Their eyes met. She could not speak. How do you say thank you to the woman who took you into her home and family and loved you for who you were? Marie hugged Carolyn as tears rolled down her face.

“I know,” Carolyn said patting Marie’s back encouragingly. “I love you, too.”

“Thank you,” whispered Marie. She slipped out of the car and retrieved her suitcase from the trunk.

Carolyn wiped her eyes. “Write me and we will write you back,” she shouted out of the car window to Marie’s retreating back.

Marie turned around with a smile on her face. “I will,” she said. “I love you, too!”

Carolyn watched Marie straighten her back as she walked toward the other young men and women gathered on the sidewalk in front of the American Airlines ticket booth. Staff Sargeant Banning was there in his dress blues, just as he had promised.

“Welcome ladies, and gentlemen,” he said smiling. The bus to the induction center will leave in about 20 minutes. We will complete your paperwork and physical there and then it is back to the airport for your plane bound for Lackland Air Force Base. Welcome to the United States Air Force!

On July 12, 1976, Colleen Marie (Steinle) Chesebro left for basic training. It WAS the adventure of a lifetime!

It was great seeing you all. Come back again!

This week’s theme is about:

“Adventure”

Ronovan Hester Laughter

“We love because it’s the only true adventure.”
Nikki Giovanni
From Wikipedia: Yolande Cornelia “Nikki” Giovanni, Jr. (born June 7, 1943) is an American poet, writer, commentator, activist, and educator. One of the world’s most well-known African American poets, her work includes poetry anthologies, poetry recordings, and nonfiction essays, and covers topics ranging from race and social issues to children’s literature.

 

In the beginning, love is tender like the new growth of spring.

As maturity comes so does the knowledge love is a painful thing.

Life then surrounds us and we know love is not bound by a ring.

Finally we come of age and discover love is the adventure to which we must cling.
