#WCW Hook ’em with a quote

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
― Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

It is Words Crush Wednesday once again and I find myself busy with the Writing 101 course that is put out by Blogging U.  So last week when I saw that one of our assignments was to “Hook ’em with a quote” I knew immediately I’d be putting that assignment on hold until now.

The quote I have chosen jumped out at me as

  1. Fun
  2. Relevant
  3. Timely

And here’s why:  I had just moments before been reading through my classmates submissions for the day and ran across Jim’s post entitled, “Writing 101, Catching Up, Day 3 and Day 4.” Like Jim, I didn’t get started on my assignments on Day One, however I feel no rush to “catch up” with my peers.  I have been doing the assignments out of order when they appeal or inspire me.  I have always wanted to do things my way.  A scrapbooking class?  You bet, I’m there; can’t wait!  Thanks for the materials… Ah look, how cute, you all did the exact same page!  Nope, not me.  I gotta be uniquely me.  My vocation requires strict adherence to guidelines and deadlines so when it comes to my avocations I just gotta let my hair down and swing from the trees like Jane.

Woosh!

Woosh!

Woosh!

    1. Hi Ann. Words Crush Wednesday, yes, it is a fun easy post that uses a quote to inspire or simply just stand alone. There are “rules” to playing which are listed in every one of my #wcw posts. However, I created a post on how to play. I probably won’t run it until next Wednesday though.

      You can revisit this post to review the rules or check out my other #wcw posts here.

      Thanks for your question, I hope to begin enjoying quotes from you in the future!

    1. It’s just frustrating to see people who have been at it one month with more followers than I have for over a year of blogging. I took off the # and now I don’t worry about it any more. 🙂 I am writing less now but only because it’s about me again not about writing for my followers. I hope they read, enjoy and stay. But I got to do this for me or it isn’t worth it.

  1. Hi Brianna,
    Thanks for writing me back.
    1. I would be frustrated too. Then I try to get perspective. Maybe they are blogging about a more popular topic than I am. Maybe they are funny. There are so many factors that come into play.
    2. I think your idea to remove the number of subscribers is a good one if it results in a happier blogging experience.
