Alright, it’s Monday again, and I hope everyone is enjoying their July. I suppose it’s vacation month for most of you, and I’m sure your having fun – I took my vacation last month. So, most of you probably know the rules, but in case you’re new: You must write a story of at least a hundred words, and not more than five hundred (if you want to post it as a comment – if it’s just for yourself, then it can be as long as you want). The story must be about the theme given in this post. So, if the theme I give you is Life, don’t write a story about the lord of the underworld. If the theme is War, don’t write a story about a farmer planting his crops. Themes are very broad, so it really shouldn’t be hard to stay within a given theme, but I teach, so I know that some people have trouble with this.
Your theme: Fighting Spirit
You can take your own meaning from this, but as I write it my thought is the traditional martial definition. That is the desire to hurt or kill an opponent in battle – though the term has taken on several other meanings as well.
