Title Writing Prompt Challenge Round 11 Voting — “Ode To…”

This is the Eleventh 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 11 Title — Ode to… — was chosen by Gary. Perry will choose the title for the next round.

Assuming everyone has read the three stories titled Ode To…, 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):

Embracing the role of Queen. (continuation of the novel)

A football icon joins the army after 911. He comes home in a casket. His fellow soldier and friend escorts the fallen hero back home on a slow-moving train. Here, he has time to re-think the details of the battle.

Ever wonder who would win in a one-on-one basketball game between Michael Jordan and Lebron James. Well, EverGames Inc. has cracked the code. From DNA, they re-create players and pitch them against one another . . . for the viewing pleasures of the obscenely wealthy.
Charlie Parlay has been tagged to manage a new division at EverGames – Gladiatorial Combat. Watch as he enters the arena to combat his dead stepfather – the man who murdered his mother.

For this round, the voting will close in about two weeks, Noon on Saturday, December 31th, 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.
