Our word this month is:


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

18th of June

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!

Basic Rules:

The Prompt Word will be given the First FRIDAY of every month.

Post your story by the 3rd Friday of the same month (this is the same date as the Stories post goes live).


  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 – 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!

    • Sorry for the late update! I ended up sick last week (I think my immune system final dived with all that I’ve been trying to do lately), but I’m on the mend. Bleh! I’ve got you added to the stories page! ❤

  5. I missed last month entirely, and barely found the time to blog about the lambs, so here I am with a merciless pun-fest for June. I pulled out all the stops for this one and couldn’t work out how to push them back in again.
    Or endure.
    It depends on how you feel about puns.

  7. Hey all! So sorry about last month! Both Gary and I have had crazy personal lives and last month turned into a, well, I don’t have a word for it! But I’m back and will have June all set! Nothing bad happening for either of us, but between my small business and my daughter’s graduation, and other personal life activities I have been absent from pretty much everything online. I’m so sorry for not messaging everyone to let you know, though, that May might not get set up properly! I’ll be going back through an updating May as soon as possible too. Maybe we can call it a redo for June and move June to July, just offset everything by a month? Would that be a better option for you all?
