My writer friend, Nicholas Hughes, and I had a “blogwar” not long ago with a theme of RABBITS. Our blogwar was essentially just taking that word and writing a fictional tale that related to the theme. It was tons of fun! Nicholas won, hands down, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Not only that, but just attempting to come up with a short story themed on that one word was a great way to get the creative juices flowing.
I’d like to continue this exercise in creativity and want to invite you all along on the adventure! I’m going to start calling it a #BlogBattle, though, so as not to get confused with other stuff. If you participate and tweet “#BlogBattle” along with your blog submission, then I’ll retweet it as part of the fun.
- 1000 words max
- fictional tales (or true if you really want)
- PG (no more than PG-13) Content – let’s keep this family friendly!
- Your story must contain the word(s) from the theme and/or be centered around the theme in a way that shows it is clearly related
- Go for the entertainment value!
- Have fun!
Okay, so now let’s recap:
Four Leaf Clover (in honor of St. Patrick’s Day) is the theme for our #BlogBattle
Write a 1000 words (or less) story for this theme and post it on Tuesday, March 17th, 2015.
I’ll figure out the choosing-a-“winner” thing soon. But whoever “wins” will get your story reblogged on my blog with credit and links back to your own. Plus, I will tweet about you for a week. 🙂 Sound good? This should be fun! Happy writing, my friends!
PS Share/Reblog/Tell your friends and let’s see how many of our wonderful, creative friends we can get to participate!
