Alphabet Challenge “E” Stories voting results

The polls for the”E” Stories are now closed. Soon, the “F” Stories will go live.

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

Here’s a photo before I continue . . .

Yes, it’s stuffed, photographed, cropped, with a sky added and treated to Topaz Impression 2.0.

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.

“E” Stories writers and scoring:

Evangelist: That would be Perry. He gets 3 points for the first-place finish.

Embroiled: That would be me. I gets 2 points for the second-place finish.

Endowments: That would be Gary. He gets 1 point for the third-place finish.

Yes, also stuffed, etc. etc.

This round had the same turnout as last time; sixteen (16) votes. Of course, we’re watching the world implode and people have other things to worry about besides reading and voting in this contest.

I’m not too displeased with my showing as it was a last-minute offering with minimal editing.

I feel like I need to call out the one odd vote; I just don’t believe anyone can dislike the stories “exactly equal”. I wrote the option in those words knowing it’s an impossibility. I can understand not wanting to vote, but even if someone hated all of the stories, they must have some sort of ranking. I mean, I hate broccoli, Democrats, and Republicans, but there’s no way I can honestly say I dislike them all exactly the same . . . wait . . . nevermind.

It’s the asymptote problem; as curve approaches infinity, it’s indistinguishable from a straight line. Nice! . . . one reader thought our stories were infinitely bad.

Anyway, here are the current standings:

To reiterate, there’s nothing wrong with voting and not leaving comments. Or, not voting and leaving a comment. 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.

However, these are trying times. Take care of yourselves first, and if you want to pass on future stories, that’s fine.

One final photo . . .

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
