Week 1 Challenge Topic - HERO

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Oct 01, 2020 12:22 pm

Hello, Challengeers. Welcome back after our break. I hope you are ready to go, with this whole new bunch of challenge topics - our last set for 2020. Our first topic is:


Most people at some point in their lives have looked up to someone, seeing them as a hero. Marvel and DC bring some of our favorite superheroes to life and, of course, Jesus Christ is the world’s ultimate hero, coming to save more than the day by dying for our sins and rising again. But really, anyone can be a hero in somebody’s eyes - whether they overcome odds, live for others, do something honorable when it would have been easier not to, or even save the day.

And if that doesn’t inspire you, some folks call a particular type of sandwich a hero. It all works for this topic!

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:

Welcome back to the challenge - be my HERO and get an entry in. Hope to see you in the list!

Love, Joanne
