Alphabet Challenge “J” Stories voting results

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

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

Here’s a photo before I continue . . .

It’s something treated to Topaz Impression 2.0 and Topaz Restyle and framed using Topaz Studio 1.0. Good luck guessing what it is.

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.

J” Stories writers and scoring:

The Jersey: That would be Perry. He gets 3 points for the first-place finish. That would be Gary. He gets 2 points for the second-place finish.

Jaguar: That would be Me. I get 1 point for the third-place finish.

With 16 votes cast, I consider this a mediocre voting round, but given the amount of effluent hitting multiple fans, we’ll take what we can get.

Perry dressed his story and it brought home the prize. Really, either of the Broxson Twins stories could be sitting on the top spot, and in this round, I was outclassed.

The race is getting tighter and I don’t know if this means we are all similarly gifted writers or that we are similarly crappy writers.

As I said before, I need to crank up my game or risk a last-place showing. Honest, I didn’t think the Broxson Twins would mount this kind of challenge. I don’t mean they aren’t good writers; I mean that I thought I’d get into the swing of things, get in the groove, insert other metaphor here. 

Alas, nothing is coming to me right now. Oh, well.

So, what are the standings?

Folks, we got us a tight race.

Anyway, the earliest the “K” stories are likely to go live is sometimes tomorrow. Since I’ve yet to write anything, it might even be Tuesday.

Anyway, take care of yourselves first, and if these offerings don’t sit well on your plate, that’s fine. Regardless of your participation, thank you for stopping by.

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

      On behalf of the writers, thanks. As for me having it in me . . . perhaps I’ve done used it all up. it sure done feels that way because . . . Words Be Hard.

      As for the photos, I was happy with how they turned out.


  2. Words be hard.
    Truth. For so many reasons these days. So much is out of focus these days.(I do enjoy reading the stories. Phantom voter, though. Interested in reading the poll outcome.)
    Cool first and last picture. Texture is intriguing. Mystery is good.


  3. Congrats to all 3 writers! I admire what you are doing! The stories are always great.
    It is always so hard to pick just one above the others! I’m always conflicted!
    The photos are wonderfully beautiful and artistic!

      Thank you, Carolyn. Sadly, in these last few rounds (and the current round), I’ve not offered up anything memorable. Perry and Gary have been stepping up their game and they are the ones making it worthwhile for readers to stop by.

      Sometimes soon I’ll get wake up from my slumber (I hope).

      • Well, you’ll step up again soon and knock them back down!

        I have so many racing thoughts and feelings these days, and I’m finding it hard to write anything. Not writers block…I think it’s more emotional.

        I can tell you exactly what it is . . . writing fiction seems out of place with the events. I have opinions, some insight I could offer, and even just thoughts about what I read, see, and hear . . . and all that seems more important than writing fiction.

        Fiction is important too, obviously . . . we need the occasional escape from the stuff that threatens to suffocate us . . . but that “stuff” intrudes. Especially when you see the truth distorted and abused. Or, if not the “truth” common sense.

        But, yes, amo try. For one thing, I’m stepping back from sources of news and opinions, even those I agree with because they suck up so much energy. We’ll see if I can do it and if it will make a difference.

        Thanks for the vote of confidence (but make sure you vote for the best/better story).
