Week 6 Challenge Topic - TRAIL

Post by itsjoanne » Thu May 13, 2021 2:21 pm

Welcome back from our short break, Challengeers! The Week 6 topic is:


It’s good to have a path to follow when you don’t know where to go - some are paved, while others might not be. People walk along trails, and sometimes they leave a trail. Others might follow that same trail, or trail a person or animal to find its location. Personally, whichever I’m doing, I’m likely to take along some trail mix (yum!). Trail can be a noun or a verb. You can blaze a trail, or trail behind. To trail can also mean to be losing a contest or to arrive last. More possibilities too - check out the definition for more ideas.


Have fun with this 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.

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:

Hope to see you on the list!

Love, Joanne
