Hello! Welcome to the new Blog Battle, a weekly writing prompt competition! If you haven’t already, check out the slightly altered rules.
I’m posting this a little early so that people have lots of time to be reminded to get their #BlogBattle story out there! This week’s word is Perfect. How can you use that in a story? If you want a little start to your adventure, here’s a sentence:
“The rancid odor of spoiling meat assaulted his nose and sent his stomach to churning, but there was no way he’d let this call ruin his perfect day.”
Feel free to see what you can do with this entire sentence or start fresh! You choose. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Be sure to add a link back to this post or comment below with a link to your story so we can add it to the post! Happy Writing!
Battle 76’s “Debacle” Winner is Rachael (by default!)! Don’t forget to add the battle winner badge to your story!
