3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge Nomination!

I’ve been nominated by Angela over at I Am My Own Island for the 3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge! Thank you so much Angela for the nomination! It means so much to me.

First, here are the rules for the challenge:

1.) Thank the person who nominated you

2.) Select a quote for the next three days and write about it

3.) Nominated 3 other bloggers for the challenge!

 

Here is my quote for the first day of the challenge:

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
–Toni Morrison

I love this quote! As someone who hopes to be a professional writer one day (and someone who likes to write for fun), I think it’s so important to realize that if we have a good idea for a story and it hasn’t been done yet, we have almost an obligation to write it. I think as writers with creative minds, we have the obligation to share our stories with others. I think that what Toni Morrison is trying to say in her quote is that if we have an idea that’s so good that we say to ourselves “Man, I’d love to read that, but no one’s written about it”, then we ourselves need to put it into words!

I admit that while I’ve tried to do this (I’m working on a couple of stories now), I often stop in the middle of writing, which I know many authors say is a big no-no. I think sometimes we get so worried about our stories being perfect or not well researched enough, that we give up on it for “the time being”. However, that “small break” ends up being longer and longer if our pieces of writing aren’t tended to. I think we all need to remember the importance of Toni Morrison’s quote!

Okay, now for my three nominees…

1.) Mary from Marysaverageadventures

2.) Jen from The Anxiety Chronicles

3.) Shaun from Tales in Anxiety

Also, anyone else that wants to do this challenge is more than welcome!

    1. I’m sure your ideas are worth putting out there! I think the problem with my story is that there’s a lot of research to do with it and I just don’t know where to find all the information. I’ve tried to look, but it’s not easy. Still though, I think if we have good ideas, we need to share them! I think you’re doing that by writing your blog too! 🙂

  1. Well thank you my dear ☺️. I accept the challenge!
    I like this quote. It is fair to say that if we feel there is something we really want to read and have yet to come across it, we should create it ourselves. It’s just harder than it seems. I’ve written a children’s story and I’ve tried to get it published, but no luck yet. It’s easy to become discouraged, but with hard work and perseverance, that story we really want others to read, will happen.

      1. I felt the same way, so I decided to read it to my son and he loved it. It’s very imaginative, the story. So he liked that the character who is named after him (Nate) imagines to be in different places, meeting different people! I also had a few family members read it and with some input, changed and fixed a few things. Just takes trial and error I think. But to get something published, seems so difficult!

      2. That’s so cool that he loved it so much! I hate how for contests and stuff, you have to pay. I mean, I kind of get it, but if you don’t win you just paid to have your story or poem thrown out! It can be tough.

      3. Yea that’s disheartening. I’m not comfortable sending out my stories because I always feel someone will keep it and get credit 😬.
