Week 9 Challenge Topic - ANCIENT

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Jun 04, 2020 11:29 am

Here we are at the last topic until July. (Also, the LAST TOPIC to qualify for the 2020 Best of the Best! ) (https://www.faithwriters.com/wc-best-of ... chives.php) Did you manage to enter at all this quarter? If not, there’s still time with our final topic for the quarter. The Week 9 topic is:


There’s old, and then there’s ancient. A lot of times, however, it depends on your perspective. When I was a kid, I thought people my age now were ancient (or at least pretty close to it!). Shall we just say that my perception has changed? And just because something is ancient doesn’t mean it’s useless or irrelevant. Take the Bible - old isn’t always bad (though it isn’t necessarily good, either!). Ancient can refer to people, places, or things. Check out the definition for an unique idea or two.


Have fun with the topic. 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, try to get an entry in before you take a nice break until we come back with the next quarter’s first topic on July 2. (and again - your LAST OPPORTUNITY to qualify for the Best of the Best contest!)Hope to see you on the list!

Love, Joanne
