Alphabet Challenge “W” Stories voting results

The polls for the”W” 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 a mural along Aliʻi Drive in Kailua Kona, the Big Island of Hawaiʻi (also called Hawaiʻi). It’s actually a snippet of a 130-ft-long mural.

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.

W” Stories writers and scoring:

The Weatherman<<link: That would be Gary. He gets 3 points for the first-place finish.

Wild Things<<link: That would be Perry. He gets 2 points for the second-place finish.

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

With 36 votes cast, I consider this an excellent voting round.

Congratulations to Gary for the strong finish to get him the win.

Honestly, the results surprised me. I’d have picked Perry for the win, and by a comfortable margin. I guess I must have missed something readers picked up on, or it could just be I’m not the audience for that story.

So, what are the standings?

There are a total of 3 rounds remaining. The maximum number of points any one writer can earn from here on — presuming they win all remaining rounds — is 9.

Gary is the odds-on favorite to win the competition, although Perry could catch him on a strong showing. While not mathematically out of it, practically speaking, I’m out of the running.

Anyway, the “X” stories are likely to go live is sometimes in the next few days.

What the heck, here’s another multiple-photos panorama . . .

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.
