  • You can post a link to your story in the comments section at any time, and we’ll add it to the Stories Post.

Be sure to post your story by the 30th of the Same Month and check out the other listed stories. We add more throughout the month, so check back regularly to find new ones.

Share your input in the comments of the Stories Post to let us know your favorites!


  1. 1000 words max (give or take a few)
  2. fictional tale (or true if you really want)
  3. PG-13 (or less) Content – 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
