Weekend Words is an original weekly meme at 52 Letters that showcases inspiring quotes from books, about writing, and about life. This feature will happen every weekend, either on Saturday or Sunday, depending on my (and your) schedule.
Everyone should feel free to take part–it would honestly make my day! Just please link to this page in your post. 🙂
While this is a reading/writing centric blog, this feature doesn’t have to be focused on those areas–it is intentionally open-ended to give bloggers a chance to say what’s on their mind.
Quotes can just be typed, or they can involve graphic design or drawing. Please make sure that credit is given where credit is due if you do not create the images yourself.
Each Weekend Words has three parts:
1. A Powerful Quote From a Recent Read
This one is fairly self-explainitory. Share a quote from a book that you are either reading or just finished. If you aren’t a book-centric blog, this could be a quote from a magazine/newspaper article or a quote that you heard somewhere (on the radio, on a TV show, etc.). Avoid spoilers (of course) but other than that, anything goes.
2. A Quote that Inspired You This Week
This quote can deal with life, writing, reading–honestly anything. It doesn’t even have to be a quote you “discovered” this week, just one that helped you get through the week or that gives you the extra bit of motivation you need to face the next week’s hurdles.
3. Something You’ve Been Wanting to Say
This is entirely up to you. I’ll probably talk about school, politics, or my writing–who knows what mood I’ll be in when I write this each week. It doesn’t have to be positive, but it shouldn’t be intentionally mean or disrespectful. Let’s strive for constructive honesty. This is a chance for you to share the little thoughts that you had that weren’t big enough for a blog post (or that don’t exactly fit the theme of your blog), but that you want to put out into the world.
You can use my graphic, or create your own. If you’re curious, the text in the graphic is a scene from the first WIP I ever wrote, a MG/YA novel called After We Waited for Ever. I needed a big block of text and decided to “go back to my roots.”
I hope some of you decide to take part! All I ask is that you link to this page in your post. 🙂 I can’t wait to see what quotes you come up with!
