Post subject:  QCFA Writing Contest I've entered

The Quent Cordair Fine Art gallery "Haiku and Win" contest, that I was invited to write in, has ended for the inclusion of more entries, but the voting of the entries that have been entered, is still going on until November 5th. This is the FB event contest site:

https://www.facebook.com/events/125948304242590/?ref=22

Please consider GOING TO THAT SITE to "like" entries that you do genuinely like, because each time you do, it counts as a vote. :)
I REFUSE to vote for my own written entries there, as at least one other writer has theirs. If I win, I want it to be solely by being worthy enough of YOUR "like". So please, consider going to that site and simply "like" any that you like of my numerous written entries there, and others written entries there, too. :) Thanks!

The art featured there is Romantic Realism, which has much to do with Ayn Rand's aesthetics(art) branch of her philosophy. So you know why I'm posting it here.

I feel I'm at a slight disadvantage because I do NOT have many FB friends, I do not have HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS as other writers there, do. So I have to think of ways to make this advantageous for me, compensate for this. I've figured out one way, but this is another way - by appealing to YOU. Several of my 84 entries have been pulled, or are still pending approval, or when the rules changed, I could not enter some of them, but you will find ALL of them on my FB wall. MANY MANY MANY of them are STILL THERE on the contest site, so please, GO THERE to SHOW ME YOUR "LIKES". I'm thinking of making my 7th published book out of some of them and more I'll write. I wrote all of them in just over a week's time. At around #30, I was like, "Hey, I have so many, I could make a book out of them." So far I am. I've cleverly titled it, Five Seven Five. Never wrote a Haiku or anything like these before this contest. Wrote my first entry, then I soon asked if we could enter more than one. When it was approved, it opened up a vein instantly. (that's an expression, not to be taken literally) And all that flowed out of me. If you don't understand some, ask me about them. Please, consider going to that FB event site. It's so simple. Just "like" entries you like, that's it. Please.

Or, you can talk about my entries here, if you'd like. I seek visibility (not in the "attention whore" sense, but in the Nathaniel Branden, Ellen Kenner, Edwin A. Locke psychological sense of the term) I just want to find my kind of readers, who can value my writing, as it is, for what it is. Thanks! :)

On my face, sunshine.
In my glass, great tasting wine.
Day off work: divine!

Here is another fine example, one that is, I think, the most liked one of mine right now. If any of you like these PLEASE simply go to the link in my first post to "like" it on the Facebook contest page.

No one on my side.
I'm caught in-between two sides.
I must stand my ground.

This book so far looks like it's going to work out. I can hyperlink in the book to the gallery where the art is featured, so it will kind of read much like turning a page to view the art, then hit the back arrow, and it takes you right back to where you were in the book. I'll have to make sure readers know that they should read this book an a device that is web capable and online in color.
