“It would be good to live in a perpetual state of leave-taking, never to go or stay, but to remain suspended in that golden emotion of love and longing; to be missed without being gone, to be loved without satiety.”
John Steinbeck, The Log from the Sea of Cortez
Here’s a new project that seems tailor-made for restless writers–Love on the Road 2013. According to the project’s website, Love on the Road 2013 “will be an anthology of stories about making connections, from heartfelt ones ending in weddings, to less high-minded ones ending in beds (or wherever). Half the stories will be about travelers meeting people far from home, and the other half about people meeting travelers passing through.”
If you have a tale of ships passing in the night, suffer from incessant wanderlust, or are simply a restless romantic, consider submitting your short story (up to 5,000 words) by March 31, 2013. There is a $10 reading fee, payable via PayPal on the website. The top 12 stories will be published in Love on the Road 2013, a paperback book distributed through Amazon.com’s publish-on-demand service and an e-book distributed through Amazon.com’s Kindle service.
