Want a Short Story Writing Prompt This September? Then Try Out the #Blogbattle and Join Our Writing Community.

Calling all writers and wordsmiths. Announcing the #BlogBattle prompt for September for those wanting a quick writing challenge.

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 this month to be put in the running to be highlighted by your friendly 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!
