Title Writing Prompt Challenge Round 1 Voting — “The Great Metaphysician”

Assuming everyone has read the three stories titled The Great Metaphysician, this is where you get to vote for your favorite. If you’ve not read the stories, links are provided below.

For them not familiar with the challenge, you can read about it HERE and HERE. For them interested, the title voting results for Round 1 are found HERE.

As a quick summary, we solicited titles, readers voted on a favorite title, we each wrote a story using that title. Again, for Round 1, the winning title was The Great Metaphysician.

As a reminder, the writing challenge has no restrictions and the stories span a wide gamut of genres. The majority of the stories fall in the G and PG rating range with a few perhaps pushing into the soft R-rating. Those ratings are guidelines but they are subjective. If you find a story disturbing because of the topics, language, and/or plot points, stop reading and move on to the next one. It may seem like obvious advice, but these days many people go out of their way to experience outrage (and then complain about it).

If you’ve already read the stories and are ready to vote, cast your vote on the poll below. I added a quick story reminder next to the names to facilitate voting and avoid voting for the wrong author.

The stories can be found at the following links:

R. G. Broxson submission<<link

Perry Broxson submission<<link

E. J. D’Alise submission<<link

For this round, the voting will close in three weeks. That’s Noon on Tuesday, April 5, 2022.

Votes are nice, but the writers also appreciate reader comments (often, more so than votes . . . but, you know, they also like votes).

A new set of titles will be offered shortly. This time, we’ll just have random titles as opposed to getting suggestions from readers. The change was made because it appeared that many people just voted for their own submission (something I should have foreseen).

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