Decided to make a better version of the Oscars selfie. Not super great, but I had to get it done tonight because I was so excited about it.

Your way out…

Hey guys, you’ve all been so ace lately so it’s GIVEAWAY TIME. Reblog/like this post and you’ll go on a list. You’re allowed to reblog as many times as you like to increase your chances. I figure a week is a good amount of time to wait. After that week I will pick three winners with a random number generator.
The first person will get: A personalised handwritten poem about anything you want. It will be at least sixteen lines long and you’re allowed to dictate elements of it. So if you want it to rhyme, it will, etc. etc. You will also get two handwritten poems of mine of your choice, as well as a letter from myself.
The second person will get: A personalised handwrittten poem that will be sixteen lines in length and two handwritten poems of mine that are your choice.
The third person will get: Two handwritten poems of their choice.
