Week 1 Challenge Topic - BURIED

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Apr 01, 2021 11:31 am

Hello, Challengeers. Welcome back after our break - and welcome to April (no fooling!). I hope you are ready to go with this whole new bunch of challenge topics. Our first topic is:


The first thought you had when you saw the topic was probably related to a dead body (maybe even Jesus’s) - but that isn’t your only option with this topic. You can certainly bury a person, but you can also bury a treasure, a news story, a bone, an idea, and lots of other things. Something is buried if it is covered - whether physically or metaphorically. There are lots of possibilities.

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:

Don’t let your idea for THIS topic get buried under other things - get writing! Hope to see you in the list!

Love, Joanne
