Week 4 Challenge Topic - EXPECTATION

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Jan 28, 2021 12:34 pm

Hey there, Challengeers. Get your hopes up for this week. The Week 4 topic is:


Sometimes, waiting for something can be half the fun - and sometimes not. Knowing your birthday is coming can make the actual day sweeter - or, if you build up your expectations too high, you can be disappointed when the celebration comes around. Personally, I love staring at a Christmas tree - and the presents underneath - for weeks before we actually open anything. Having expectations is pretty normal. They can be high or low or right on target - it depends, I suppose on your outlook on life and past experiences. The word, generally, has a positive connotation, but having those expectations dashed can certainly make things negative pretty quick. Check out the definitely below for more inspiration.


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:

I EXPECT a good number of entries this week - don’t disappoint! Hope to see you in the list.

Love, Joanne
