  • I'm trying to get my poem to Mars! Need my fellow Bronco's fan's help!!!

    So I entered a NASA contest to get my poem sent to Mars. The Top 3 entries will be put on the MAVEN orbiter scheduled to leave later this year. Out of the 12,790 entries I am currently holding the 3rd and final spot!!!

    But I am only up by 160 votes on the 4th place guy. Please only vote from your computer one time. People who vote from the same computer more than once they are taking away their votes. Feel free to share on FB, Twitter, and other social media websites.

    Here is the link and thank you all in advance:

    I forgot to mention that voting only takes about 15 seconds. There is no registration required either. You just have to hit +1 Vote and then enter the capcha.

    And the link opens directly to my poem that starts out "distant red planet".
    That's what she said.

                  Haiku's are not supposed to have capitalization in them.

                  Or punctuation.

                    Thank you all for your votes. I am still holding the 3rd spot but my lead has dwindled from 171 to 146. Still many more days of voting to go. The 2nd place guy is nearly 1,000 votes ahead of me and appears to be out of sight at the current rate. So it is likely a battle for 3rd place.

                      Thanks for the link, some amazing poems there.

                      Gotta be honest, that person just behind you in votes had a really powerful poem so I had to be true to myself and vote for that one, no hard feelings I hope.

                      I posted the link on the NFL UK forum and got LOADS of people to vote (although I'm afraid most voted for the same one I did)

                      Good luck anyway

                        Richard !!! ^

                        I'll be honest I didn't read any of the other poems, because I'm not really into poetry.... but wish you the best of TriCityBronco. I think it's a cool contest you entered there! :thumb:

                        Posters who discourage others in their talent for no reason is a good reminder as to why I don't add my short stories to non-writing forums. A writing thread would be fun in this forum for folks who like to write to contribute to.

                          Well the 4th place guy has closed the gap significantly. So if you all have a chance to vote for my poem please do so!!!

                            Local newspaper does article about my Mars poem...

                            So I had reached out to the newspaper to see if they would put a link to my poem on their website for the remainder of the contest and a reporter ended up calling me and asking to do a story on the whole thing. Pretty cool. So here is that article:

                            http://www.idahopress.com/members/mi...9bb2963f4.html

                            Here is the link to my poem if you have not had a chance to vote yet. We are trying to make 1,000 votes by tonight.

                            Thank you all for your support. It looks like I have a pretty good chance of taking 3rd. Maybe even catching up to 2nd!!!
