Week 7 Challenge Topic - HARVEST

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Nov 21, 2019 1:39 pm

Welcome back, Challengeers. Here we go with the final three topics for this quarter, starting with this one. The Week 7 topic is:


While mostly associated with farming and bringing in crops that are ready to be used, there are other meanings as well. Of course, Christ talked about the harvest of souls, but really, any “picking” things that are ripe - whether food or opportunity, literal or figurative - is a harvest. It can be plentiful or scarce, easy or difficult.

Harvest is both a noun and a verb - what you bring in is a harvest, and what you (or others) do is also to harvest. And remember, it isn’t only farmwork!

Here’s a definition for you.


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:

Let’s see what harvest of entries we can reap. Hope to see you in the list.
Love, Joanne
