Three Quote Challenge Day 1: 14.02.2016

Susan Langer, whom many of you know through the Friday Fictioneers, Share Your World, and many other challenges, has invited me to participate in the Three Quote challenge.

Susan is an avid blogger and writer with many interests. She stands up for animal rights, animal rescues, women’s rights, human rights and mental health awareness.  Apart from participating in many challenges, she blogs about daily life and issues that are important to her. On her creative writing blog, she posts poems, short stories, and flash fiction. Furthermore she helps you with PR for your site or product. You can find Susan’s writings on her personal blog, and on her other blogs, Susan’s blog. The Inner Soul, Susan’s Creative Writing and Poetry, and Susan’s Devotional Journal. Please go and check  it out, there’s something there for everyone. Thank you, Susan, for inviting me to this interesting challenge.

I’m going to focus on quotes from Ursula K. Le Guin. She is one of my favourite writers.

As a writer you are free. You are about the freest person that ever was. Your freedom is what you have bought with your solitude, your loneliness. You are in the country where you make up the rules, the laws. You are both dictator and obedient populace. It is a country nobody has ever explored before. It is up to you to make the maps, to build the cities. Nobody else in the world can do it, or ever could do it, or ever will be able to do it again.
Ursula K. Le Guin

These are the rules for this challenge:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post one fresh quotation on three consecutive days.
  3. On each of the three days, nominate three folks who have not yet taken part to continue the challenge.

As with many challenges, the rules can be bent a little, if need be, to fit in with people’s blogging schedules. Some bloggers have posted all three quotes in one day. I’ve seen other people posting them over three weeks rather than three days. It’s really up to you how you complete the challenge.

And so, for day one, I nominate:

Terry Boswell from Through The Lense of My Life
Dale from A Delectable Life
Joy Pixley from Tales from Eneana

I see this as a fun challenge, something to get to know each other a bit better.

  1. What a great quote! And not surprisingly, since it’s Ursula K. LeGuin, who is one of my all-time favorite authors! Her work is such a huge inspiration to my Eneana stories. Looking forward to hearing what other quotes of hers you pick!

    1. I think she inspires many of us (I include myself hesitantly). She is the only writer so far where I liked what she did when she returned to a previous finished series and continued it. Thank you, I’m glad you liked. 🙂
