CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: THIRD ANNUAL CYBERSPACE AWARDS FOR MEMORABLE QUOTES


Happy Days are here again! It’s time for the Third Annual Cyberspace Awards for Memorable Quotes…and this year we will have Prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd – place quotes as determined  by the official impartial judge: me.

The rules are simple. Send as many of your favorite quotes as you want to my secret email address smortex@aol.com. Be sure to put your name on the submission and credit your source on the quote if you have one. If you don’t, just make something up.

You may not submit ones that you sent in previous contests. I know, I know. You really liked the ones you sent last year, but branch out – think outside the box, as the memorable quote goes – and find another one.

The top ten quotes will be published here on the blog. Hooray!! The 3rd place winner will receive an autographed copy of I’ll Call It Like I See It: A Lesbian Speaks Out (my personal favorite), 2nd place gets an autographed copy of my most recent book  The Short Side of Time, and 1st place wins the audio version of Deep in the Heart: A Memoir of Love and Longing read by the author who is moi.

This year there will be no separate contest for cemetery tombstones – they will be allowed in the memorable quote contest, however. So walk through your favorite cemeteries (JB) and pick out a good tombstone quote.

The deadline is October 27th – two weeks from today – so put your thinking caps on, as Granny Selma used to say when she was in her right mind, and get those submissions coming in.

To jump-start your imagination, I’ll share a new quote that I saw minutes ago:

“One lie has the power to tarnish a thousand truths.”

————- Al David

Throw down the remote, give Facebook a mini-break, grab your journals and get going…have fun and Good Luck!!

P.S. At least we can think about something other than the news headlines for a little while.

 

 

 

 

 

About Sheila Morris

Sheila Morris is an essayist with humorist tendencies who periodically indulges her desires to write outside her genre by trying to write fiction and poetry. In December, 2017, the University of South Carolina Press is publishing her collection of first-person accounts of the people primarily responsible for the development of LGBT organizations in South Carolina. Southern Perspectives on the Queer Movement: Committed to Home will resonate with everyone interested in LGBT history in the South during the tumultuous times from the AIDS pandemic to marriage equality. She has published four nonfiction books including two memoirs, an essay compilation and a group of her favorite blogs from I'll Call It Like I See It. Her first book, Deep in the Heart: A Memoir of Love and Longing received a Golden Crown Literary Society Award in 2008. Her writings have been included in various anthologies - most recently the 2017 Saints and Sinners Literary Magazine. She is a displaced Texan living in South Carolina with her wife Teresa Williams and their dogs Spike and Charly. Her Texas roots are never too far from her thoughts.
