Say what you will, I didn't know what a haiku was. Oh, I'm sure I learned it once in grade school but it ended up somewhere back in the dark, cluttered recesses of my brain. Why in the world would I ever need to learn to write a haiku?
To get a scholarship, that's why!
My quest for financial assistance has become borderline desperation, and I now find myself begging friends, family, Facebookers and Tweeps... and apparently blog readers, for votes.
Yes, this is my plea for you to vote for me, or my haiku more specifically in the DirectTextbook Haiku Contest.
The scholarship is for only $500, but in my little world $500 is a BIG DEAL. So this is the part where I beg you to go to DirectTextbook and VOTE for my Haiku!
Then I ask you to tweet about it, post about it on Facebook, and in all other ways rally your forces to come out and support little ol' me with a vote. I would be ever so grateful!
And for the fun of it, I think I'll do a little giveaway. If I win the $500 scholarship I'll give away a $25 Amazon Gift Card!
Comment here that you've voted and you get one entry.
Comment again that you've tweeted and that's another entry.
Comment again still that you posted on Facebook and that will be yet another entry!
One entry per comment, one comment per entry. You know how it works!
Again... if I win the $500 scholarship I'll pick a winner and give away a $25 Amazon Gift Card. Go now. Vote.
