|10:39 am - The most insane way to get my poem published XDD|
I am oh so highly amused XDDD A few months back, a friend sent me this promotional email thing for some store and said if I signed up then both she and I can have a chance to get this gift card or something. Usually I just delete these emails, but I figured she probably wanted the gift card so to help her out I signed up. Along the application process, this page pops up asking me to type in a poem under 24 lines for a chance to win some prizes. Happens all the time right? I mean these scammy sounding "click to win!" adds, but since I had nothing better to do I took 15 minutes and whipped up a quick poem:
Life of a Human
With each coming day
We go on our way
the same old route
to see if our work bore fruit.
As years come and go
As friends turn to foe
The memories of a child
turn from vibrant to mild.
should be more than strife
cannot be so cruel.
the journey is complete
Blindly we plunge
and sent it in not expecting to hear anything further. Today, I get this email...telling me I've been entered into the semi-finalist round of the competition and my poem's getting published in this poetry anthology XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD Omg!! HAHA!!!! Of all the ways to get published haha!! I am oh so highly amused!!! I ordered a copy of the anothology, the email said it's getting printed in the summer. And they had this option of adding some info to the poem, like my comments on how this poem's important to me or how poetry affects my life or something and I'm like "er......it's....important cuz uh...it took 15 minutes out of my life??" *snicker* Honestly though I feel kinda bad cuz i actually really hate poetry (especially after my English class this semester ~___~) and the email's all "oh we're so happy that poetry plays such a big part in your life, etc. etc" ^^;;;
Current Mood: amused
