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. Read more about Susan on my post for Day 1 of the challenge
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. By looking through her many quotes, I realized that I need to narrow this down a bit further. It seems that there’s a quote from her about almost everything. I’ll be focussing on quotes about writing.
These are the rules for this challenge:
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post one fresh quotation on three consecutive days.
- 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:
I see this as a fun challenge, something to get to know each other a bit better. I think that, if you like this challenge, just grab it and run with it. I’ll happily nominate more people, too, if you drop me a line. This nomination thing is always difficult anyway.
