Welcome to the home page of Writer’s Quotes Wednesday Writer’s Challenge (WQWWC), first started by Colleen and Ronovan.

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

Brendan Behan

Starting from the top, topics for one year.

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

Joseph Roux

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.

  1. My gosh, I love this idea. You were kind enough to visit my blog and comment on a photography post so I wanted to return the favor. So glad to meet you and to discover the WQWWC challenge. I am struggling to do an index card a day with Denyse and daisyyellowart.com, https://daisyyellowart.com/vividlife/icad-2021-index. Thinking maybe combining these projects might help inspire me!!

    Enjoyed your poem. It is hard to write when the passion or heat of doing so has gone cold. I think of things I want to write and explore but if I don’t sit down and start the moment I am inspired, I lose the fire or spark. Need to have a little pad where I can jot thoughts instantly.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by. Your project sounds like a lot of fun. I hope you can find a way to mesh the challenges together. I try to do several challenges at the same time when I can. My friends Terri at Sunday Stills Cee Neuner, who has a ton of challenges, are really awesome at participating in everyone’s challenges. She’s all over the place. I stopped by your website. It looks like these are a product.
