Week 3 Challenge Topic - PROTECT

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Apr 16, 2020 12:57 pm

Hi there, Challengeers. With social distancing and such, you may have been thinking about this week’s topic more than usual lately. The Week 3 topic is:


There are so many things these days we may feel like we need protection from: disease, danger, our neighbors, politicians - the list goes on. Our kids probably need even more protection. I am so thankful for those who put their lives on the line to keep US protected, whether they are in the military, a police officer or firefighter, or just a regular person.

But people aren’t the only things we protect - you can protect your investments, your furniture, your reputation, and so much more (that’s what insurance is for, right?).

You probably don’t actually need a definition, but here’s one anyway.


Have fun with the topic—that’s the most important thing. 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:

Don’t forget to enter. Hope to see you in the list.

Love, Joanne
