I am now to nominate three bloggers to continue the 3 Days Quotation Challenge. Remember, you can put them all in one post, if you decide. Of course, you can do anything you like. The quotations you choose can be about anything you like.
1.) Either once a day for three days, post a quotation, or post all 3 quotations at one time. It is your choice.
2.) Nominate and notify three other bloggers of the challenge.
3.) Thank the blogger who nominated you.
The nominees are under no obligation to complete this challenge, but it would be fun if you do. I am nominating bloggers who I think would like this challenge.
I like this quote because I truly believe a good book will find its audience. With the focus on genre and knowing your audience, I’d like to think the real focus should be the writing and the story. Call me an idealist. This quote also speaks to sharing a story because you’re compelled to do so, for no other reason than you need to write it down. It has a kind of purity that speaks to me.
Perhaps I write for no one. Perhaps for the same person children are writing for when they scrawl their names in the snow.
Greetings! I’ve been nominated by Charles French to participate in the Quotations Challenge in which one provides three quotations over the next three days or all in one post. I choose one quote for the next three days, mostly because I can’t choose them all at once. Thank you, Charles, for nominating me. It’s an honor!
Probably most of the quotes I select will relate to writing in some way because I find them inspirational and never tire of reading them. Hopefully, I’ll come up with something you’ve never read before. If not, I hope you enjoy it anyway.
It’s simple, isn’t it? But I think it says so much. It reminds me of the ballerina who floats across the stage. It doesn’t even look like she’s dancing and it’s so effortless, but THAT….that took lots of practice!
So, it is with writing. Writing that dances off the page is hard to accomplish. When writing tries too hard, there isn’t much joy in reading it. You know that feeling you have when you’re reading a book and you forget you’re reading. It’s that, too. It’s such a powerful thing.
