Three Day Quote Challenge – Day 3

I was nominated by the lovely Sidra of the blog The 7 Of Us, to take part in the Three Day Quote Challenge.

The Rules :

1) Thank the person who nominated you
2) Post a quote for 3 consecutive days ( 1 post each day )
3) Nominate 3 bloggers each day – I’m sorry, I’m a rebel, but I shall leave this open to you all!!!!!

Now, if you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know I have taken part in this one several times as I love a good quote!

Favourite quotes were used up the first couple of times, so I decided to theme each challenge.

This time I am going with Ernest Hemmingway and his words of wisdom.

I fear this is where I was going wrong with my first draft… writing sober… Next time I decide to pen a novel, I shall do it with my bottle of prosecco right next to me, and save the soberness for the editing!

Remember: If you fancy having a go, please do, and link back to this post!

Oh, and while I’m at it, just a quick reminder that the Annual Blogger’s Bash Awards voting closes on Monday, and But I Smile Anyway has been nominated for Best Overall Blogger, if you fancy popping over and voting! You just need to click here.

    What a coincidence. I just got a joke sent by some one in a whatsapp group as follows:

    Mom : Alcohol is your enemy.

    Jesus : Love thy enemy.

    Case closed.

    Hemingway must have got this much before others to write those masterpieces.

    So have your favorite bottle next to you and start writing.
