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 Gluttony, 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).

For the few, the brave, the individuals who’ve been waiting to once again not only read but also cast powerful votes for your favorite story (or writer, or both), the time has come. . .

The second set of stories cover the sin of Gluttony. This is the offering by Gary Broxson.

It’s been a long time coming, but the SDS “Lust” voting round has finally come to an end.

I’ll discuss various aspects of this challenge down below, but for now, here’s the updated logo . . .

If you want to read the Seven Deadly Sins stories submitted for the Sin of Lust, and see the results of the vote, THIS POST <<link is what you want to visit.

Only three days left, and no more reminders. That’s right, cari lettori (not to be confused with Carrie Fisher, Tony Carey, or — FSM forbit — Jim Carrey). Mind you, if you are one of the few, the proud, the ones who voted . . . well, perhaps you would like to visit this blog post: Inserting photos and links into WordPress Blog Posts<<link.

OK, granted, WordPress screwed with the interface, but, if you are using the Classic Editor Block, most of that stuff still works. It completely different if you use the Block Editor. I mean, the ideas are the same, but the interface has significantly changed and moved around. But, again, that link tells you stuff you can do within the Classic Block. Good luck.

But, come Wednesday at noon, Central Time, the voting closes.

Only four days left. That’s right, mes chers lecteurs (I’m hoping that’s French for ‘my dear readers‘ and not ‘I like broccoli‘). Mind you, if you are one of the few, the proud, the ones who voted . . . well, perhaps you would like to visit this blog post: The Big Dump — 2012 Hummingbirds<<link.

Due to the low vote count — and because we’re nearing the end of the voting block, I figure I would step up the reminders. Yes, only six days left. Mind you, if you are one of the few, the proud, the ones who voted . . . well, perhaps you would like to read my take on the movie Watchmen<<link.

Only twelve votes, so far. I’m not seeing these reminders do much in the way of funneling readers to the SDS stories. I guess all that reverse psychology stuff I had read about isn’t worth squat. Heck, I might have more luck doing a post about ducks and geese — Ducks and Geese<<link.

There’s nothing to it but grit one’s teeth and call up one’s grit, and then grin and bare it … wait; I don’t want to bare it! …what? Oh. Grin and bear it. Got it.

OK, call me a bit disappointed . . . but not surprised. Meaning, no votes since the last reminder, and almost no additional views. The number of views for the individual stories is pretty low (as compared to any of the Alphabet Challenge<<link rounds).

I suspected the theme would be a difficult one for most people to get into.
