Week 7 Challenge Topic - WAIT

Post by itsjoanne » Thu May 21, 2020 12:44 pm

Hi there, Challengeers. The Week 7 topic could cause a delay (and if you were here at 11ET, you already have LOL):


We all have to wait sometimes - for meal time, bedtime, or that important call to be returned, to be taken off hold, for Christmas, birthdays, the snow to come OR leave. And of course there are the bigger things - the pregnant mom’s wait to give birth, the terminally ill’s wait to die. And we are ALL waiting for the return of Christ in glory! Finding things to do while you wait can be a challenge -but for some, the anticipation while they wait is almost as good (or bad!) as the event itself.

You probably don’t need a dictionary definition - but here is one anyway (give it a look - there might be a meaning that surprises or inspires 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:

Don’t WAIT too long to get started: hope to see you in the list.
Love, Joanne
