Week 4 Challenge Topic - PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Jul 23, 2020 11:46 am

Hey there, Challengeers. Be sure to try your hardest this week. The Week 4 topic is:


This idiom means to do the best you can - to give it your all. Second best isn’t good enough in this case. Often, this is done to try to make a good impression on someone. The phrase originated in the 16th century - Shakespeare uses it at least a couple of times in his plays (he sure created a lot of different words and phrases - he certainly put HIS best foot forward!).

Here’s a bit more help to get your creativity going:

Have fun with the topic. 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.

As always, don't forget 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:


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
