Writer Wannabes, Take Note!
It's that time of year again, thanks to Stella Cameron!


DIALOGUE CAN SAY IT ALL...This year's Scarlet Boa Contest gives you an opportunity to strut your characters' verbal stuff. Put that action into words and let us hear a gem from your story.
From ten finalists, one winner will be voted on by readers to receive the coveted Scarlet Boa and Award Certificate, and three more writers will each receive an Honorable Mention. One lucky reader/voter, chosen at random on August 17 during a live Writerspace chat, will also be the winner of a boa--color, a surprise!
a. Write a scene in dialogue between two characters.
b. You may use dialogue tags.
c. Use 1,000 words or less.
d. You may submit more than one entry.
