It’s been a year of creative writing, and I’m thrilled to be celebrating this milestone with you!
Thank you all so much for being a part of the first year of #BlogBattle. I wouldn’t have ever thought to host this weekly prompt meant to inspire creativity and friendship without the competitive prodding of Nicholas Hughes and Blonde(Lucy)WriteMore, both of whom have been avid supporters. Blonde has never missed a battle!
Others who have shown up every week since the beginning are E. Rawls and PhoenixGrey. Kudos for your diligence and commitment! And then there are those of you who found out about the battles along the way and joined in, just as committed and just as creative. I am so impressed by you all.
In fact, because you show up week after week I am encouraged to keep going. If it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t be celebrating! Congrats to you all and thank you.
To celebrate, next week we will not be writing a new story for the battle. For Week 53 here is what I want from anyone and everyone who has ever battled:
- Choose one of your #BlogBattle stories from the past year
- Edit it however you would like
- Reblog/repost it next week on Tuesday, March 15th.
- Make sure you specify the genre and the theme word
We will do our voting from the compilation of awesome stories presented!
As a side note: I haven’t had time to create new ones or update the battlers pages for a couple of months. There’s just too much on my plate. It’s simple enough, I know, but it does take time I just don’t have, so I want to encourage each of you to make a ‘Blogbattle’ Category on your blog and/or a #BlogBattle page where you can post links to all your stories. It would be easier for me if I only needed to add a link back to your page of posts instead of me trying to link to every single story every week!
In the comments below, I would love it if you’d share a favorite memory or comment you received during Blog Battles. Just something that stood out in your mind and encouraged you to keep writing!
Congrats on a great first year of #BlogBattle!
