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 have your story shared here and on social media.

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!

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!

      • Yup. In due course I shall blog a set of gratuitously cute lamb photos.

        This year we have only done two ewes – just not enough grazing to let the flock grow bigger. Yesterday, ewe number one delivered twins just after dawn, and number two produced a singleton after lunch, so a full night’s sleep is now feasible.
        As we discovered – it doesn’t matter whether we lamb them all or just a sub-set, until the last one is done it’s nearly as tiring either way.

        • haha I’ve never lambed, but I have a friend who raises goats and it’s much the same. 🙂 My aunt lambs and they always have to call in help from their kids. because they have a pretty good-size flock. They live too far away for us to come help, though. 😦 I’d love to read about your lambing! ❤
