#BlogBattle: Cave


October 2018 Blog Battle

Our word this month is:


You can start writing at any time, but make sure you post your story by the 30th of the month to be put in the running to be highlighted by your friendly, incorrigible encouraging Blog Battle admins!

Once you’ve posted your story to your blog, put a link to it in the comments section, and we’ll add your story to the Battle Stories Line-up post.

Make sure to check back and read some of the stories of your fellow battlers. Leave comments to encourage these writers, and share each other’s stories!

The battler who is chosen in a given month will have the opportunity to be interviewed!

Basic Rules:

The Prompt Word will be given the First Tuesday of Every Month.

Post your story by the 30th of the Same Month.


  1. 1000 words max (give or take a few)
  2. fictional tale (or true if you really want)
  3. Any genre that fits within PG-13 (or less) Content – let’s keep this family friendly!
  4. Your story must contain the randomly chosen word(s) and/or be centered around the word meaning in a way that shows it is clearly related.
  5. Go for the entertainment value!
  6. Put a link back to your #BlogBattle Short Story in the comments section
  7. Please tweet and otherwise share your battler buddies’ stories across social media.
    1. Use the hashtag #BlogBattle when tweeting all the stories so we can cross-share.
  8. Have fun!

  8. At last, I finally made it here again! I had such a blast writing for BlogBattle last year, but then I got busy with other things and had to stay away from blogging for a while. But now I’m back. And I’ll be participating in this month’s Battle (and hopefully all the following months.)
    It’s great to be back here 🙂

    • Me too, Simon! I missed getting one in for September. You’d think a month would be plenty of time, but… August had a good turn out, and I’m terrible. I didn’t get to doing any kind of writer/story spotlight, but I was going to feature VP Grey (PhoenixGrey) because it seemed appropriate. Between her lovely story and the fact that she’s been a faithful battler since the very beginning. Might still have to squeeze it in this month!
