The Alphabet Challenge: “G” Stories Voting

Assuming everyone has read the stories, this is the place where you can vote for your favorite of the “G” Stories.

For readers who stumbled here or who need a refresher, the stories can be found by clicking on their respective names.

Here are the links to the stories:



Granny Goodnight

All readers have to do is read each story and choose the one they liked best. Voting is open until the publication of the next group of stories (the “H” stories) at which time the votes will be tallied and a winner declared.

As a reminder, to have your vote count, click on the circle next to the story you’re voting for, and then click on “Vote”. If you don’t click on “Vote”, your choice won’t be recorded.

If you want to make sure your vote is registered, click “View Results” before voting, then, go back to the poll and vote, and then click “View Results” again to confirm the counters have changed.

If your vote didn’t register, please let me know.
The system has a check for duplicate votes, so if you try voting again within a week of when you last voted, the vote won’t register.

I removed the universal hate/love and the “no vote” options from the poll as they aren’t helpful to the writers.

I had them in there in the hope someone would at least leave a comment as to what they loved or hated about the stories or why they didn’t want to vote, but those votes on their own are of no use to us and, by universal agreement, those voting options are removed.

If you really can’t pick one story over the others, don’t vote.

If you would like to leave a comment for the writers — either here or with the individual stories posts — please do so. I will forward each comment/question to the appropriate writer.

The writers will appreciate hearing from you and will likely respond.

The next round of stories — the “H” Stories — should be up around the end of April.

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

    Living the gauntlet – every part except I don’t have a Sam’s membership. I also loved Granny Goodnight especially with the nod to the Twilight Zone (one of my favorites!).

    Sonehow I read #3, Gauntlet first. I never knew the simple art/act of shopping could be so compelling (if that’s the right word). I already picked it as the winner before reading the other two. Then, I read the other two. The Twilight Zone story was so full of sarcasm ( know I shouldn’t but I am still snickering over “lady parts cancer”) and rich in detail. It really had me thinking. And then another granny-related story. It took me a while to get into Geronimo. So many big words (for me) I had to look up: subsumed, numinous, promulgator and johnboat. There must be a Chapter 2 or sequel to this story. I demand it.

    Also, I’d love to share these stories w/others but know you have rules & regs. Can I post a link to on my Facebook wall?

      Anyone is always welcome to share a link. The rules are for people copying stuff and posting it on their blogs.

      Thank you for reading them, and I hope you voted (and encourage friends to vote).

        If you post a link, I would suggest posting a link to this post because it has links to the stories. If you just link the blog, they will get whichever is my latest post at the time they click on it.

      I will pass this comment on to the writers as I am sure they will enjoy it.
