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!

  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!

      • Thanks, Gary, good to be back. A combination of moving into a new house and starting from scratch with the garden and having upset a couple of people with the frankness of my views on some blogging practices has led to a hiatus of sorts, especially on stories. I’ve been concentrating more on poetry recently and on re-entering my episodic relationship with stand-up comedy.

        • House moves do create a few changes in priority, especially in a pandemic. I’m guessing it went relatively smoothly though since you’re here!

          I caught a snippet of the debates, but was late getting to them and figured my input wouldn’t really be warranted. I find it best to actually be in the debate rather than drop in after. I did get where you were coming from though as I’ve seen similar several times over the years.

          I don’t think you’ve upset anyone here though. Certainly not me!

    • Too quick Joshua! This is rather like handing the early baton between us! I’ve read this already (early as opposed to seen it before, which I haven’t obviously!). Added to the list just now. Will comment when time says it’s safe to do so lol

    • I only just wrote ‘Tea’ two or three days ago 😂 I’ll be on this ASAP! Want to get back into the habit of being early with my BB entries. 🙂 Hope you’re all doing well! I think I’m all caught up now (barring yesterday’s messages). Hopefully I’ll stay (mostly) on top of things from now on, but the best laid plans, and all that, haha…
