Three Days, Three Quotes: Challenge (Part 3)

I was nominated by Charles, GalitHannah, and Amy.

If you missed part one, check it out here.

If you want to see part two, here you go.

Rules:

  • Post one quote a day for three days (from others or your own).
  • Nominate three other bloggers to participate per post.
  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.

I’m taking some old writing tips from myself so it isn’t really stealing. It’s recycling. The environment can thank me later.

You can find daily (if I don’t forget) writing tips on my Facebook and my Twitter.

I say this all the time:

You cannot rush creativity.

Nominations: 

  • Y
  • O
  • U

I know, I know. I said the following in my first post of this series:

“I’ll try to follow these rules. No guarantees though.”

The rebel in me is nominating anyone and everyone who wants to partake in sharing quotes. Inclusiveness should be my middle name.

That’s all, folks. I’ll be back to my usual silliness tomorrow.

Get To Know Unconference And Contest Opportunities

I’ve been meaning to share these opportunities for a while now.

The Unconference is in Calgary, Alberta this year and will take place from October 2-4. Get to Know invites youth ages 12 to 25 to submit a proposal outlining ideas for an art presentation that will make a statement about the environment or present a solution to a current environmental issue. Any art form is welcome. There will be cash prizes awarded for the winners in each age category. The deadline is June 1st, 2015. You can find more information here.

The contest runs from May 1st to November 1st. Participants can submit an entry inspired by nature in the art, writing, photos, video, or music category. It’s open to Canadian residents 19 or under. The video category is open to youth in all countries. For more details, click here.

If you know anybody who would be interested in entering, spread the word.
