Our word this month is:


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

20th of August

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 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!

  6. This one has had me stumped but now, standing in front of the computer on one leg (strengthening exercises from my podiatrist) I think I’ve got a story.

    I just can’t type too well balanced on one leg.

      • I’ve had to take a break for a couple of days due to a new twinge which probably means I overdid something, so no photos to be had. Not that they would be that interesting – it’s literally hold one foot an inch off the ground to work muscles in the other leg.

        On the positive side, my partner nagged and I went to see her podiatrist, so things are getting fixed. I could have just ignored the pain in my foot and carried on until the damage was so bad I couldn’t walk.

        The punchline was that I have the same problems as her but for different reasons. She did laugh when I told her the diagnosis. πŸ™‚
