Week 8 Challenge Topic - WOUND

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Nov 26, 2020 12:22 pm

Welcome back, Challengeers (and Happy Thanksgiving to us Americans!). Here we go with the final two topics for this quarter, starting with this one. The Week 8 topic is:


There are at least a few different possibilities with this one. In addition to being the past tense of wind. a wound is an injury generally caused by something external (as opposed to disease). Of course, wounds don’t have to be physical - we can be wounded emotionally or spiritually as well as physically. Also, a toy can get wound up - as can a person. These are just a few examples. The dictionary definition might inspire you to another angle.


Have fun with the topic because it is a fun one. You can write in any genre or style you like, AS LONG AS SOME MEANING OF THE TOPIC IS THE MAIN FOCUS OF YOUR ENTRY ... and as long as the entry conforms to the rules.

And keep this in mind: Entries may be in any style or genre, and they do not need to be overtly Christian in message. However, they must, at minimum, come from a Christian worldview/outlook. In the case of fiction, the Christian worldview/outlook may be subtle or allegorical, but it should still offer a fairly clear Christian viewpoint.

Remember to check your word count before submitting (entries must be between 150 and 750 words). A very reliable and free online word count check tool is this one:


PLEASE, always hit the preview button to check your entry before hitting the final submit button. This is the only way to make sure your entry is uploaded correctly. This is very important, particularly if you are using HTML code for the first time. Once you have previewed your entry, close the preview page and hit the submit button.

Finally, once submitted, do a check to make sure your entry is safely in the list:

Hope to see you in the list.

Love, Joanne
