#BlogBattle: Corona


June 2019 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 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!
  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!
Any photos included with the prompt are only for your benefit as a pinch of inspiration. They don’t need to dictate your theme or story genre. Only the Word of the Month counts! Photos are thanks to various photographers from Unsplash.com

      • June has not been a good month for getting stuff done. Lambs happened around June 1st, and then my partner had a health scare which meant I was doing most of the work.
        I probably shouldn’t say that things are quietening down now.

        • I’d say you’ve done plenty Mark. Maybe not on a writing or blogging front, but don’t knock back work on the farm. That’s a pretty full on job. Add in the health scare and you’ve had a very busy month. Lambing alone is a big job so kudos where it’s due!

  3. Updated to my pingback Rachael. Not that my formatting is being friendly at the moment on my blog. Linked both Airtight and Corona though in a genre first with an AI that could well have written The God Strain hack 🤔
