Our word this month is:


You can start writing at any time, but make sure you post your story by the

19th of March

to have a link 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 that goes live the 3rd Friday of the month (the same as the post-by date).

Make sure to check back and read some of the stories of your fellow battlers. Leave comments to encourage these writers. And go a step further in supporting one another by sharing each other’s stories on your own blog or social media, whatever you’re most comfortable with!

  1. up to 2000 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)-type Content β€“ 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 public domain photo sharing sites like Unsplash and Pixabay.

  7. Already so many entries, as per usual, which makes me chuckle. An idea did spring to mind as soon as I read the prompt, so now it’s just a matter of writing it up. Exciting!

    I won’t read anyone’s stuff until the 19th so as to miss out on anyone and so as not to cloud my own idea.

    You took out the lower word limit, I see. Although I try to stick to writing stories around 1k each, I think it allows for more flexibility and freedom, not having to worry about reaching a certain word count. I know some people submitted 99-word pieces, which were quite a treat. If that will grow this great community, I am all up for it!
