Alphabet Challenge “U” Stories voting results

The polls for the”U” Stories are now closed.

You can check the results of the voting HERE<<link. Since few people click on links, here are the results.

Here’s a photo before I continue . . .

It’s hawk 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.

U” Stories writers and scoring:

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

Unmaking a Monster <<link: That would be Gary. He gets 2 points for the second-place finish.

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

With 27 votes cast, I consider this a good voting round, although the 25% drop in total votes is a bit of a disapointment. Still, as I said, that’s a good turnout.

Congratulation to Perry both for mounting a comeback and getting into contention, but also for writing a story that resonated with readers.

With Perry’s win, the race gets tight, with only three points separating the three writers.

So, what are the standings?

There are a total of 5 rounds remaining. The maximum number of points any one writer can earn from here on — presuming they win all remaining rounds — is 15.

Anyway, the earliest the “V” stories are likely to go live is sometimes tomorrow . . . but don’t be surprised if we run a few days late (the world is still nuts, people still have lives, and whatever other excuse will earn forgiveness and patience from the readers).

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.
