Week 3 Challenge Topic - CLEAR AS MUD

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Jul 18, 2019 1:20 pm

WK 3 – CLEAR AS MUD

Hi there, Challengeers. The Week 3 topic is as:

CLEAR AS MUD
http://www.faithwriters.com/writing-challenge-intro.php

It’s a fun cliché that uses two opposites to make a point. If something is as clear as mud, then that means it’s not clear at all. For example:

The guide’s directions were as clear as mud. That’s why we ended up getting lost five times.

If something is as “clear as mud,” it’s confusing, unclear, and difficult to understand. (Ever had an instruction manual that fits this particular cliché? I know I have.)

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 in mind the adjusted Challenge rule: 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 clearly see your muddy entry in the Challenge this week.

Love,
Joanne
