Week 1 Challenge Topic - MOUNTAIN

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Jul 02, 2020 10:48 am


Hello, Challengeers. (Be sure you check out our 2020 Best of the Best, announced just yesterday!) Welcome back after our break. I hope you are ready to go, with this whole new bunch of challenge topics. Our first topic is:


There are mountains all around us - whether natural ones, or ones we might create ourselves. I have had mountains of laundry to do after a vacation. I have also looked at mountains while on that very same trip. People climb them (because they’re there), take pictures of them, build on them, dig through them, make them out of molehills (figuratively, of course), create them, and probably several other things I’m not even thinking of.

Here’s a definition for you.


As always, 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:

Hoping for A MOUNTAIN of entries this week. Hope to see you in the list!

Love, Joanne
