Calling all writers and wordsmiths. A New Year, new challenges and #BlogBattle is here so come join our community and see where the prompts take you.
Let’s face it, any writing is better than no writing. If the WIP is draining the will to drink coffee, step out and try something totally different.
Engage with authors and writers and the rewards will speak for themselves.
Each month there is a new prompt. Entries are welcome any time up to the end of that month. 1000 words is a maximum, not a target. Any genre, any writing.
You can start writing at any time, but make sure you post your story by the 30th of the month to be put in the running to be highlighted by your friendly,
incorrigible encouraging Blog Battle admins!
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!
January 2019 Blog Battle
Our word this month is:
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
You can start writing at any time, but make sure you post your story by the 30th of the month to come into the running for featured writer by your friendly, incorrigible encouraging Blog Battle admins!
The featured writer is by no means the ultimate story of the month. We are trying to develop a supportive community, increase engagement and shout out battlers. To do this we need to pick one of our regular participants and give them a spotlight. The aim is to rotate who this is and give them exposure on social media.
Once you’ve posted your story to your blog, put a link to it in the comments section on the following link and we’ll add your story to the Battle Stories Line-up post.
Use the hashtag #BlogBattle on Twitter. If you link me in too @GaryJefferies10 then I’ll also retweet it.
The Prompt Word will be given the First Tuesday of Every Month.
