Alphabet Challenge “L” Stories voting results

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

You can check the results of the voting HERE (L Stories). But, as I know few care cares, I’ll force the results onto you now.

Here’s a photo before I continue . . .

It’s the dash of my Highlander at 9009 miles treated to Topaz Impression 2.0 and framed using Topaz Studio 1.0.

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.

L” Stories writers and scoring:

L.I.F.E. <<Link: That would be Perry. He gets 3 points for the first-place finish.

LT <<Link: That would be Gary. He gets 1.5 points for the second-place tie.

Legend <<Link: That would be me. I get 1.5 points for the second-place tie.

With 22 votes cast, I consider this an excellent voting round.

I was surprised at the results . . . but then, I nearly always am.

I find myself in third place despite having the majority of the total votes. Where’s the electoral college when you need it?

But, that’s more indicative of some lob-sided early voting results than my mastery of the writing craft.

So, what are the standings?

As I mentioned a few rounds ago when Perry was lagging, don’t count anyone out. But, for that statement to hold true, I need to step up my game and give readers what they want . . . and I would if I could.

Anyway, the earliest the “M” stories are likely to go live is sometimes tomorrow. I might even have one written by then.

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.

    Well done, guys! Thank you for putting forth the effort to provide us with great short stories . . . that is the most important aspect about this.

    And the photos are a more non-organic offering . . . different and interesting.

      But still good, right?

      The second is a halway at the Long Beach Hyatt, the third and fourth are from the engine room of the Queen Mary (also in Long Beach).

      After I pressed the “post comment” button, I realized my reply to the photos was kinda vague . . . as you comment implied. So, let’s set the record straight . . . yes, the photos are not only good, they provide a great visual to use when painting abstracts!!! The second and third ones are very inspiring . . . so much so that I’m going straight to the painting table and doing some fun abstract painting!

  2. There seems to be a pattern here: the story that gets my vote seldom wins! I wonder why. Maybe I’m too old. Oh well, still looking forward to the next batch of stories!


    • disperser says:

      Alas, I’ve also fallen into a pattern of sorts . . . the stories I write don’t win.


      • AnnMarie says:

        I prefer to think it a cycle instead of a pattern. To me, a cycle implies some sort of movement (like a rise and fall, indicating some element of change occurs), but a pattern just repeats itself. That would be boring . . . and my brother is anything but boring. And that’s meant as a compliment, bro.

        Yeah, but you might be a tad biased.


  3. Great job! all three of you! They were such fun stories to read!
    But, Darn! The story I voted for didn’t win. Oh, well, like I’ve said before…you 3 are such great writers it is VERY difficult to narrow it down to one..

    Good luck to all on the M-Stories! :-)

    The photos are so cool and different and interesting.
    I must say…the first 2 remind me of men’s brains/minds…the last 2 remind me women’s brains/minds. Ha. :-D Just teasin’!
    (((HUGS))) to you and Melisa!

      The key to having the story you voted for win . . . is to get all your friends and stangers off the street to read it and also vote for it.

      . . . wait . . . women have brains? Son of a gun! Who’d it thunk it?!

      I kid, of course. Women have the same amount of brains as men . . . which makes me feel bad for women.
