Round 10 Title Writing Challenge Voting Reminder

This is a quick reminder that the voting for Round 10 of the Title Challenge closes tomorrow at 12:00 (Noon) Central DST Time (Chicago time). Your time depends on your location and whether your time zone follows DST.

If you’ve read the stories, you can vote for them HERE. Coincidentally, that post also has links to the stories in case you get a sudden urge to read them before voting.

I kid, of course . . . you should definitely read them before you vote. Heck, read them even if you don’t vote. After all, reading is fundamental.

Gary and Perry have been neck-and-neck for most of the round, so even a few votes could affect the outcome.

These photos are from early October, and I figured I’d share them before we transition out of Fall and into Winter proper. Of course, that only applies to readers living in the Northern hemisphere.

By the way, did you notice the bird?

Anyway, here are a few more . . .

October 12th was a rainy day, in case it’s not evident by the photos.

I should announce the next title, chosen by Gary . . . it’s An Ode To . . . The writers get to fill in the rest.

That ornamental grass has already been cut. Normally I wait until late Winter or Early Spring, but I for intrepid in November before the weather changed from Summer to Winter . . . while still Fall.

Paraphrasing The Mamas & the Papas, all them leaves are gone now.

Anyway, less than 24 hours before voting closes. Spread the word.

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