Writing in Color’s Creative Quote Challenge

Writing - ledes - quoteOn Saturday, I wrote about productivity and creativity, and about how they can work together. Sometimes it’s a good idea to take a creativity break. New research says it can even make you more productive! Have you tried it this week?

I also presented a challenge. It was a list of 15 inspirational quotes and a list of the people who said them in incorrect order. The challenge was to put them in order. Did you try it? How did you do? I’d like to hear. Below are the answers. As promised I also put the challenge part into a PDF file that you can print out. It also includes an answer key. Have fun, stay productive and creative.

Here is a link to the original post.

  4. “If we listened to our intellect we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go in business because we’d be cynical: “It’s gonna go wrong.” Or “She’s going to hurt me.” Or, “I’ve had a couple of bad love affairs, so therefore . . .” Well, that’s nonsense. You’re going to miss life. You’ve got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down.” Ray Bradbury

    Oh, I like all these, even though I was waaay off in guessing who said what! It’s good to have inspiration – makes the tough days better and the good days brighter.

    • Thanks Deanne, Did you get the one from Dr. Seuss? I had to put a couple in that were just funny, after all, humor is not the opposite of seriousness it is the opposite of despair. 🙂 I keep a list of ones that make me laugh and ones that inspire me. Feel free to print out the quiz or pass it along online.

What is Writing?

"A writer looks at a screen or piece of paper like a canvas. They see a country unexplored, a picture unpainted, a tale not told. They dare to venture into the barren land, explore its dark corners, and paint its pictures. Then they unveil the epic with the goal of compelling people to visit their newly discovered territory.”
Peter D. Mallett
