Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays 2022

“I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.”

Marlene Dietrich

How It Works

For the visually impaired: The only requirement to play in #WQW is that you use a quote (a song counts) and respond to it. Create a meme, short story, photoblog post, personal story, or poem. Then link it.

This weekly writing challenge runs from Wednesday through Tuesday at noon.

If you want to participate, simply click the InLinkz box and add your information or create a pingback to link your post. Not sure how to do that? See how to create pingbacks here

“A quotation in a speech, article or book is like a rifle in the hands of an infantryman. It speaks with authority.”

Brendan Behan

During our first year of Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays, we explored topics of character building and emotions as well as basic holiday topics. This year I expanded on the most popular topics of last year: fitness, communication, travel, vacations, weather, and friendship. To comment on the 2022 WQW Changes visit my Reflections post.

Starting from the top, topics for one year. If you are an expert on one of these topics and want to host that week, or would like to share a personal video, please contact me.

Welcome to the home page of Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays (WQW), first started by Colleen and Ronovan. For 2022 the name of the challenge will change to Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays or WQW.

“A fine quotation is a diamond in the hand of a man of wit and a pebble in the hand of a fool.”

The Writer’s Conflict – Clash of the Quotes

KL Caley

The inspiration just won’t come
Surely I’m not the only one
Let’s turn to the greats for advice
There I should find something nice

A classic quote from Mr Thoreau
An essayist, poet and philosopher too
A Harvard College education
Plus much more I haven’t mentioned

So what’s his advice for me to do
“Write while the heat is in you”
My heat has cooled down indeed
Perhaps a break is what I need

But wait, a new quote, from Stephen King
A writer indeed above all things
His books are a favourite, his advice is a must
He is certainly a voice I would trust

So what’s his advice for me to do
I guess it’s something I already knew
“Just get up and go to work”
Get on with it, I think with a smirk

Fingers to keyboard I begin to type
The classic or conventional which is right
This is my creation, I’ll let you judge
But it was the King that provided me that nudge.

Where to Get Insightful Quotations

I usually use Google or Bing to get my quotes. Sometimes a great blog post comes up with suggestions. You might get quotes and ideas from other WQW participants.
