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!
I lost my head this week and literally thought it was Ronovan’s week! Ah well, what do you do? Thanks for being patient with me. That is what happens when you have fifty things happening all at once.
The best part of this whole situation is it made me realize (again) all the great participants we have who take part in this challenge each week.
So today, I am honored to share Vashti’s post, called “BELIEVE.” I was so taken with her writing and in the selection of her theme, that I would like to thank her by using her theme this week. Thank you, Vashti! ❤
Please use #WQWWC on Twitter so 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 has been fascinating science fiction stories, poetry, and even a song or two!
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…
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 “HOPE” (Please click on their name to visit their blog to read their contribution)
This is my week, and Ronovan will be back next week to share his theme with you.
THIS WEEK’S THEME IS “BELIEVE.” (belief, or any form of the word)
So what do you do?
Each Wednesday (this week it was posted on Thursday), 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.
I’ve reused one of my favorite quotes from Roald Dahl about believing in magic. And yes, it is no secret about how much I adore anything magical. But just think about the kind of life you might have if you never believed in anything magical or worse yet, you lost hope…
This rainbow actually appeared during a thunderstorm here in Colorado last month. The definition of the double bands is awe inspiring. I know this rainbow is caused by weather phenomena that involve moisture and sunlight. So, close your eyes and just think for a moment, if you were an ancient human and saw this same sight.
It would be magical! How could you not believe in magic after seeing such an amazing sight?
Believe in rainbows and look for the magic. It’s right there in front of you.
Hugs and see you next week when Ronovan will dazzle you with his talent!
“A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him.”
