Week 1 Challenge Topic - MUSIC

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Apr 02, 2020 11:17 am

Hello, Challengeers. Welcome back after our break. With all that is going on in the world today, I hope a topic for your writing will give you a way to keep your mind off your troubles! We have an artistic topic to get the ball rolling:


There are hundreds of different styles of music, whether they be voice, instrument, or even nature. Most everyone likes music of one type or another. Some of us can make it ourselves, while others just like to listen. The variety of styles - and ways to make and listen to it - are likely more numerous than you realize. And for many, music can be inspirational.

It can also be symbolic - you can "face the music," and good news can be "music to your ears." There are lots of possibilities.

Here’s a definition for you.


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:

Hoping for LOTS of entries this week. Hope to see you in the list - it would be music to my ears!

Love, Joanne
