I was nominated for the Three Day Quote Challenge by A Willful Woman. I don’t often get nominated for such things, and I really appreciate this one. I need a nudge to update my blog and get back into the habit of posting more often. I hope the bloggers I nominate will find this challenge equally helpful.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you.
- Publish a quote on 3 consecutive days on your blog. The quote can be one of your own, from a book, movie, or from anyone who inspires you.
- Nominate 3 more bloggers each day to carry on this endeavor.
Quote number 1 comes from my book Winter Suns. It’s from a scene near the end where Jute is reflecting on her relationship with Allie (a relationship that evolves in Winter Seedlings). I really like this scene because I agree with Jute about fate and how true love is built and doesn’t just fall from the sky.
“I loved her more than I will ever love anyone. But all of that is true because of the choices she and I made along the way, how we chose to treat each other and see the world around us. So many little things built up what we eventually shared, like twigs in a nest. I hate to say this because hindsight makes it feel like blasphemy, but there is a chance I could have loved someone else just as much as I had loved her.”
(Now for the most difficult part: deciding whom to nominate. I have two more days to go, so if anyone is interested in being nominated next, please let me know.)
Today I’m nominating:
S.D. Duncan – He has interesting things to say and I’d like to nudge him into writing a new blog post.
Two Paise Poems – I’d love to see which quotes have inspired the writing of poetry.
Joshua Lavender – His blog is full of great poems, songs, and lyrics.
