Hello! Welcome to Blog Battle, a weekly writing prompt competition! If you haven’t already, check out the rules (more like instructions on how to participate & have fun).
Winning story for the week will earn this badge! 🙂
Post your story to your blog any time on Tuesday until Midnight PST (there is a grace period into Weds morning, so just let me know if you are late getting it done). Throughout the course of the day, we’ll add the links (to your blog w/story title) here.
This Week’s Story WORD theme: RESOLVED
This week’s Story GENRE style: Tall Tale
The Gold Rush of Eighteen Forty-Ten by David Williamson

PS If I’m missing your story, just leave me a comment to let me know!
Read all the stories & PLEASE VOTE for your favorite.
(On a personal note I could not think of a single worthwhile Tall Tale. It is crazy, but nothing seemed to work. I started several times and every time it went nowhere. If you felt that, too, don’t give up! Try again for next week! Word: THORN, Genre: FAN FICTION. What book, character, movie, tv show etc are you a fan of? Have fun!)
