#BlogBattle 20: May 23rd “Restraint” Entries & a Farewell

Hey Friends! Participation has dwindled down to almost nil, so I’m considering shutting Blog Battle down entirely. I’ll take a week or two to decide, since I don’t like to rush into anything until I’ve thought about it a minute.

I just want to say how much I have loved writing with you all. I’m thinking I’ll eventually start a different prompt, but it will be focused on other aspects of writing and not necessarily about sharing or competitions.

My goal is always to encourage and inspire my fellow writers, so that’s what I’ll monkey around with, I think.

But like I said, I am still in the process of making the decision to let it go (I bet you’re singing the song in your head now too…). Haha Actually, this is me admitting to myself that I’m going to have to let Blog Battle go to make room for other great things.

So yeah, let’s consider this the LAST BATTLE. 

THIS WEEK, if you’ve ever participated in a battle or wanted to, post your Blog Battle story as a final farewell by Sunday, May 28th.

I promise to read them all. 

THANKS FOR BEING AWESOME!
