Week 9 Challenge Topic - BEACH

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Dec 05, 2019 1:22 pm

Here we are at the last topic for the year. Did you manage to enter at all this year? If not, there’s still time with our final topic for the quarter. The Week 9 topic is:


It’s funny how the word “beach” usually makes us think of summer days and vacations. Of course, a beach is a beach whatever the season.

You don’t need a definition, but here it is anyway.


It’s both a noun and a verb. The noun is the sand/pebbles that runs along the ocean or sea. The verb is the act of something being beached. A whale or boat may become beached.

So for our last topic of the year, I thought it would be fun to escape to the beach.

Have fun with the topic, and 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:

So don’t let this last topic slip away like the tide from the shore. Unleash your creativity and then you can sit back and enjoy a well deserved rest until we start back on January 2.
