Blog Battle 71 “Sacrilege” Entries & Voting

Heavens to Betsy! I’m such a absentminded goof. I totally forgot to add the poll for “Derelict” last week, so make sure to vote right here for last weeks’ stories then down below you’ll soon find this week’s “Sacrilege” stories and then the poll will be available for that set on Wednesday. *sigh* 😀

Hello! Welcome to the new Blog Battle, a weekly writing prompt competition! If you haven’t already, check out the slightly altered rules.

  2. Heya Rachel! So, me being what I am, I can’t seem to find the word for the 13th? Is this just me being me, or is it not posted yet? (Please tell me that’s what it is? 🙂 )
