  1. I really like the set up of Blog Battles and like participating in them. I get to step out of my comfort zone for these prompts and stretch my writing muscles (and a few other cliches). 😉 Really, the only reason I’m not participating is time. I’ve been struggling to keep up with everything. I miss Blog Battles. Hope to be returning soon.

    • I figure it’s “life” for most of us, that gets in the way of doing blog battles. They’re not as quick as some of the others for word count and style, so they might take more thought and effort, especially when it comes to the reading part. But it’s so good for me to keep at it, I can’t see myself letting go of battles any time soon. I just wish I had more time to devote to them to make them awesomely irresistible. 🙂 You know?
