Can't you just smell it in the air? Yes, it's Slacker Tuesday.
Today's Slacker Tuesday writing contest revolves around writer quotes.
Anyone whose been in Seekerville awhile knows my favorites.
Now it's your turn:
Share a romantic scene that incorporates an inspiring quote appropriate for writers. That's it!
1. Keep it clean. Anything not PG will be deleted.
2. Maximum word count of your scene is 150.
3. One entry per person.
4. You retain sole ownership of your entry.
5. Leave your email address. If you don't put your email address in the body of your comment your entry will not be considered for the contest.
6. The genre is romance, all sub-genres invited. (but remember rule #1)
7. Please be familiar with the Seekerville contest rules located in the bottom right column of our front page.
8. The entry must have one inspirational quote for writers.
9. If possible, provide the author of the quote next to your email address.
No whining allowed. If you don't want to play then take your toys to the other (boring) sandbox.
Deadline is Friday, August 6th at 9 pm MST.
(That's 8 PST, 11 EST, you get the idea..)
Winner announced in the weekend edition.
To the winner goes a $15 Amazon gift card.
Once again, Marlena Fortune and Madame Zelda will pick the winner based completely on their own special brand of twisted subjectivity.
Honorable Mentions: If you are a total slacker like me and simply want to share your favorite quotes you can win a copy of Ruth Logan Herne's Waiting Out The Storm, in a random slacker drawing which also ends Friday at 9 MST.
Also, today anyone who would like a Seeker bookmark, loaded with writerly Bible verses, simply send an email with your snail mail addy to the contact link in Seekerville. Offer valid until Friday, at 9 MST.
BTW the June scene winner was Kristen Arnold. She's the reigning champ to beat. Her entry can be found in the June comments.

A last note. Since this is Slacker Tuesday I feeling contractually obligated to give you a really good opportunity to slackerize, as I am doing today.
So for a good time, I mean, if you want to have fun--wait, what I'm trying to say is here's a great place to slackerate:
