The Alphabet Challenge: links to all of the stories and a bit more

Readers may have a favorite story, favorite multiple stories, or favorite writer of The Alphabet Challenge.  This post is for them readers.

Also, for new subscribers (the rare ones who aren’t subscribing just to sell me something), this is a convenient post should they be moved to read all the offerings.

Not only that, new subscribers who read the stories can still vote even though it won’t change the results of the challenge. But, it may give the individual writers a bit of a boost knowing they reached a few more readers.

If you are new to the blog and just discovered the Alphabet Challenge, and if you intend to read and vote, THIS<<link search gets you to the voting posts. Each of those posts has links to the individual stories for that round and a poll where you can vote for one of that round’s stories.

If you only want to read — and want links to — the individual stories grouped by writer, keep reading.

For readers who just care about reading the winners of each round, their links are in BOLD and Red. Note: stories in a couple of rounds had tied for first place, and those are also in bold.

I suggest readers at least look at the other stories because there are some unheralded gems there. After all, you might not agree with other people’s assessment of what constitutes a winner, and the fact a particular story didn’t “win” isn’t an indication it’s lacking in quality.

The writing challenge has no restrictions and the stories span a wide gamut of genres. The majority of the stories fall in the PG-rating range with a few perhaps pushing into the soft R-rating. Some readers might find a few of the stories disturbing because of the topics and/or plot points, and if so, stop reading and move onto the next offering.

Stories range from 1,500 to 6,000 words, but most hit the 2,500 to 3,500-word count and are about a ten minutes read (if you are a slow reader). Meaning, they are the perfect break from the hustle and bustle of life.

OK, enough preamble . . . each of the following links will open in a new tab or window. Enjoy.

No, wait . . . one more thing; votes are nice and all, but all three of us appreciate feedback on the stories (good or bad). If you leave a comment, the writers will usually respond.

Ok, enough post-preamble to the preamble . . . enjoy.

Note: I think (and hope) all the links work. If something doesn’t, let me know in the comments.

Now, on to other stuff . . . namely, the reminder photos. I could do a gallery of all the photos, but it’s easier to link to the two SmugMug Galleries (LINK I and LINK II).

That’s 1,174 photos for you to peruse, and since there are no other graphics in this post, I will add a small gallery of some of the offerings . . .

Here’s something you can spend time on . . . one of those photos is NOT from the reminder posts. See if you can figure out which one.

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