Wk 1 Topic - TV Challenge

Post by Deb Porter » Thu Oct 04, 2018 8:28 pm

Hello, Challengeers. Welcome back after our break. Here we go with another eight interesting topics to help prime the pump of your writing, and here’s the first:


When it comes to listing world shaping technological advances in the 20th Century, there is no doubt that the TV—television—is on that list.


Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 60 or so years, you know all about TV. In fact, television has been around a lot longer than that, but never have more people had access to it. Never has there been more channels and content, and yet, how many of us flick the remote only to say, “there’s nothing on.”

Black and White TV, Color TV, Digital TV, Smart TV, 3D TV, Satellite TV, Internet TV … the technology continues to leap ahead. Good, bad, or indifferent, television is here to stay, in some form or other.

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.

DON’T FORGET the new Challenge rule. Every entry must communicate some form of Christian message or spiritual truth. For fiction writers, if your message is subtle or allegorical, please include a scripture at the end of the entry in order to highlight the intended message for the reader.

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:


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:

So don’t hit the pause button for this week’s Challenge. Hope to see you in the list.

Love, Deb
