New Wednesday Rotation

I am sad to say that I have-temporarily-run out of authors to interview. As such my weekly series of author interviews is over, but I will continue to post the occasional interview. Monday will remain prompt day and Friday will remain the day for longer articles. In the middle of the week, Wednesday, I will post various kinds of list posts as well as short writing tips, book and short story reviews, and the occasional excerpt or poem of my own.

In a way this development is also kind of exciting for me-I’m looking forward to feeling more free with my blogging, particularly since I recently started a new Friday series.

For today I am going to leave you with a few quotes from various women writers.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
–Maya Angelou

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

“You refuse to own yourself, you permit others to do it for you”
–Margaret Atwood

“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”
–Audre Lorde

“There must be those among whom we can sit down and weep and still be counted as warriors.”
–Adrienne Rich

I like the last one the best-which of these quotes speaks to you the most?

  1. That Margaret Atwood quote resonates tremendously. I’m working on being true to myself, my own authority. So, that one hits home.

    • Yolanda,

      Welcome to Dianna’s Writing Den.

      Margaret Atwood is one of my favourite writers, though I certainly have not read all of her books. Her words are powerful; if I wanted to I could write a whole post of her quotes. I’m glad that you liked this one.

      Thanks for reading,
      ~Dianna

  2. I probably should’ve mentioned it, but I’m not new here. Just changed my handle from Fantasy Novelista to my name.

  3. That’s a very interesting blog. It’s a shame that there’s never enough time in the day to read all of the interesting blogs that I see.

    Personally I agree-I’ve been using my writing name in most places online for years, particularly my blog. Welcome to the club.

    ~Dianna
