#BlogBattle 1: Jan 10th “Resolved” Entries & Voting

Hello! Welcome to Blog Battle, a weekly writing prompt competition! If you haven’t already, check out the rules (more like instructions on how to participate & have fun).

BB Badge

Winning story for the week will earn this badge! 🙂

Post your story to your blog any time on Tuesday until Midnight PST (there is a grace period into Weds morning, so just let me know if you are late getting it done). Throughout the course of the day, we’ll add the links (to your blog w/story title) here.

This Week’s Story WORD theme: RESOLVED

This week’s Story GENRE style: Tall Tale


The Gold Rush of Eighteen Forty-Ten by David Williamson

Resolved by Teresa “Tess” Karlinski

Charlie the Grasshopper by Julianne Q. Johnson

Resolved by Cathleen Townsend

Of the Flame Keeper’s Tale by Beaton M.

The Shimmering Shoal by Helen Jones

PS If I’m missing your story, just leave me a comment to let me know!

Read all the stories & PLEASE VOTE for your favorite.

(On a personal note I could not think of a single worthwhile Tall Tale. It is crazy, but nothing seemed to work. I started several times and every time it went nowhere. If you felt that, too, don’t give up! Try again for next week! Word: THORN, Genre: FAN FICTION. What book, character, movie, tv show etc are you a fan of? Have fun!)

You have until the next Monday at midnight EST (9 PM PST / 5 AM GMT Tues) to read the submitted stories & vote for your top three. Please consider the expert use of the theme word when choosing.

    • Found it! I don’t know what’s happening, but for the last week comments are being marked as “read” (gray instead of blue) that I’ve never read. So sorry, Cathleen! Thanks for the extra reminder and the sweet attitude. I’ll try to keep a better eye out on these comments.

    Today is the refresher of Blog Battles! Come play along. You have time to write a story, and if not, bookmark the battlers page and keep coming back for more stories. I’ll be adding more stories throughout the day today as people submit them. You will be able to read them throughout the next week and vote on your favorite by next Monday. 🙂 So fun! Such talented writers! Such a great community! So many lovely friends! 🙂


    • Such great questions, and probably things I totally neglected to actually think through to in time! I’ll get right on that, and it’s for next week. If I don’t do it every week I’m afraid I’ll forget things. As it is, my week’s already a crazy mess between my poor puppy’s itchy ears (I think she has mites so we’re treating it like crazy, getting better, but poor thing! 😦 ), the unrelenting snow (my van hates the snow), and my kids having snow days. Well…time has flown by in a whirlwind of crazy. (I might have left off the fact that my kids finally convinced me to play Minecraft with them, and now I’m a Mama Miner. Ugh. haha)


    • Me too! I hope I can get it done and excited they are back. haha I haven’t written my yet, but because I need grace, I’ve extended the “grace period” to about 10am on Weds to make it less stress for us all. 🙂 I hope you’re feeling better by degrees!
