Week 6 Challenge Topic - CLOWN

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Feb 13, 2020 12:26 pm

Welcome back, Challengeers! The Week 6 topic is:


Some people love them - others are deathly afraid of them. But no matter how you feel about the costumed circus performers, we know they like to clown around (and most of us do too - at least sometimes).

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


Even when you are talking about a person - this word isn’t just for those with makeup, fuzzy hair, and big shoes. Silly people are called clowns, as are practical jokers.

Have fun with this topic (it seems pretty natural to do so - don’t you think?) 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; don’t clown around (too much!) - work on that entry!

Love, Joanne
