Week 1 Topic - Day's End

Postby Deb Porter » Thu Jan 02, 2014 4:17 am

Did you notice that the Challenge started back a little earlier this week? For this week only, the topic is up ahead of time, so you have a little longer to think about your entry.

And the topic this week is:

DAY'S END

Do with it whatever you desire, as long as the main focus of your entry is some aspect of "Day's End."

Have fun, and feel free to chat about the topic here.

Re: Week 1 Topic - Day's End

Postby Cinnamon Bear » Fri Jan 03, 2014 12:54 pm

I see three possible interpretations of this topic:

1) A literal interpretation---the end of a 24 hour day or the end of a workday or sunset on any given day

2) An idiom that seems to be used more in British English than in American English. The idiom means "when everything else has been taken into consideration". As in "At the end of the day it is her decision."

3) The end of a life or perhaps the end of an era.

I am not sure if any of these interpretations are correct for this topic---I am particularly uncertain about my third interpretation.

Or maybe there are other interpretations that I hadn't thought of?

Any suggestions or insights will be most welcome.

Cinnamon Bear :)

I love your poem/song Jan, it used to be the theme song for our girl's scout club back in college. It brings good memories.

This week's topic is truly an interesting one. I realize this when I noticed that no direction/guide was given along with the topic, as is normally done when the topic meaning is not so explicit. So my take away is that the interpretation is left to our creativity....I might be wrong, but it makes it interesting to see the different perspectives that each writer will take.

Amelia, you are quite right. Sometimes the topics need to be fairly specific to ensure they fit the actual theme of the future book. We've run into problems in the past with some themes. So sometimes we just have to give a little clarity.

For this quarter, though, as long as it's obvious the author has focused on some interpretation of the topic, that will be fine.

Have fun.

I actually got an idea... the ending came to me first (ironically). I even got started on it. Hope to finish it tonight/tomorrow and submit, for the first time in AGES. :superhappy

I might actually enter this one -- I got the wackiest idea from the most usual happenstance. Working on it now. :)

After a couple of university courses I have time to do the Challenge once again. :D
Looking forward to this quarter. :wink:

Good to hear about some "old timers" planning to enter again. Yay!

Actually, I have noticed a few returnees this week. Great to see.

Hi, my name is Theresa and it's been a year since I entered my last Challenge entry...

And this old timer (relatively speaking) is excited to jump back in!

:P

Hi Theresa. :D

Welcome back.

Rachel, this week is historically the most popular week of the Challenge. Any idea why? Image
