Title Writing Prompt Challenge Round 10 Voting — “Once Upon A Time”

This is the Tenth round of the Title Writing Prompt Challenge. For them unfamiliar with the challenge, a quick summary: three writers offer the fruit of their labor and inspiration based on a given title.

The Round 10 Title — Once Upon A Time… — was chosen by me. Gary will choose the title for the next round.

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

As a reminder, the writing challenge has no restrictions, and the stories span various genres. Most of the stories fall in the G and PG rating range, with a few 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. The same goes if you are not interested in finishing a story. It may seem like obvious advice, but these days many people go out of their way to experience outrage (and then complain about it).

The stories can be found at the following links (including a blurb from each writer):

Some have destiny thrust upon them. (Beginning of a novel)

Nathan J. Derkle fancied himself an intrepid reporter – with a penchant for supernatural mysteries. He finds himself interviewing Reveille Evans, a man on death row, who claims that the man he killed is still alive, and that the man, perhaps, has always been alive.

R. G. Broxson submission<<link
General Harold Dickens Barker spent his life as a music manager. He hitched his wagon to a soulful singer by the name of T. Tyler Griffin. They sold more records than Elvis, until they didn’t. See what happens when you make a deal with the devil.

For this round, the voting will close in about two weeks, Noon on Wednesday, December 7th, 2022.

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

The title for the next round will be announced soon.

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