The SDS Challenge — Third Wrath Voting Reminder

We had a small burst of votes, and then . . . stagnation. So, another reminder that the voting for the SDS Challenge Wrath Stories is underway.

If you are new to the SDS Challenge, a little background.

Three writers will each write one story a month going down the list of deadly sins. The stories can be anywhere from 666 words to 6,666 words in length, although those numbers are not set in stone. If ambitious, the writers will provide accompanying graphics. These stories will not be anonymous because some writers may want to use the same characters for each story and write a series — or book — encompassing all seven sins. Finally, interpretation of the titular sin is up to the writer. Meaning, each ‘sin’ can take multiple forms.

Disclaimer: The writing challenge has no restrictions and the stories will likely 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, language, and/or plot points, and if so, stop reading and move on.

If you want to read the Seven Deadly Sins submissions for the Sin of Wrath, and then vote, your gateway is THIS POST <<link. There, you’ll find links to each of the three stories and a poll for you to vote after you finish them (if you be so moved).

I’ve been working on a post for a few days now, but it’s not ready . . . so here are a few photos of me repurposing the wire shelves we pulled from the closets (all of the closets are now redone).

These were the last of the shelves that I put up . . .

This is what they looked like when I put the movable racks back and got stuff off the floor . . .

These are the ones I’d previously put up . . .

That’s our tornado shelter on the right (which we hope we’ll never have to use).

This is what the two walls look like now . . .

Some might remember my previous work with pegboards and their organization potential.

I still have a few things I want to do, but I’m pretty much there . . . next up, the laundry room … soon(ish).

Anyway, if at all interested in reading three tales about Wrath, you now know where to find them (and where to vote for the one you like best or hate least) . . . you be got about three weeks left.

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