Week 6 Challenge Topic - THANKFUL

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Nov 14, 2019 12:36 pm

Welcome back, Challengeers! The Week 6 topic, in concert with the season, is:


Here in the US, Thanksgiving is only a couple weeks away - but no matter where you are, there are, and should, be things you are thankful for. No matter how hard life is, just knowing God is in control is a reason to be grateful.

You don’t really need a dictionary definition, do you? But you can have one anyway:


So, look around, count your blessings (maybe even some unexpected ones others may not SEE that way), and get started on your entry!

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:

Come on, Challengeers; let’s make a list of entries we can be thankful for.
