Alphabet Challenge “C” Stories voting results

The polls for the”C” Stories are now closed. Tomorrow, the “D” Stories will go live.

You can check the results of the voting HERE (C Stories). But, as I know no one cares, I’ll force the results onto you now.

Here’s a photo before I continue . . .

Yes, still playing with the tree photos.

So, what does the voting mean for the writers? Well, outside of a few bragging rights, not much. But, let’s proceed with the reveals, the answer to “Who wrote which stories?” question.

“C” Stories writers and scoring:

Crash: That would be Gary Broxson. He gets 3 points for the first-place finish.

Candidate: That would be Perry Broxson. He gets 2 points for the second-place finish.

Combat: That would be me. I get 1 point for the third-place finish.

All things considering, we had a pretty good turnout; twenty-three (23) votes. I mean, yes, only 1.4% of my subscribers voted, but as far as engagement goes, that’s pretty good for this blog.

Of course, I hoped my story would do better, especially since I thought this was the best of my stories so far in this challenge. It just goes to show you can never tell what resonates with readers.

And yes, it could just be — and probably is — that I’m right about my story, but that the other two offerings were just better.

Anyway, here are the current standings:

A couple of comments. For each trio of stories, I’ll keep the voting open until the next story group goes up (about two weeks). If you have comments about the stories, we — the writers — would appreciate hearing them. I added the option of not liking any of the stories (perfectly legitimate), but if you could tell us why maybe you’ll help us improve the next ones we write (if we heed your advice).

Since I have the option of liking none of the stories, I’ll also add the option of liking all the stories. Realistically, that’s not all that helpful as far as the challenge goes, and I think a reader should be able to decide on one story making more of an impact than the others.

However, just in case we have wishy-washy readers, they’ll have the option of letting us writers know how brilliant we are. They won’t add to the scoring but it helps by letting me know how many people actually read the stories.

To reiterate, there’s nothing wrong with voting and not leaving comments. Also, if you read the stories but would rather not vote, that’s also fine, but we would appreciate letting us know you at least read the stories.

One final photo of the tree . . .
