Jan 2023 Week 3 - Buy / Bye

Post by RedBaron »

Buy / Bye

You can enter here: https://www.faithwriters.com/writing-ch ... -intro.php


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.

This quarter’s topics will be about Word Play, specifically Homophones. Each topic for this quarter will be a pair of homophones. Do your best to use BOTH meanings of the word in each entry and have at least one of the word to be central to the topic of your entry, but be sure to be clear about which word you are focusing on (or both!). This should be really challenging and hopefully a lot of fun! Please see the forum or our Facebook page for more information and discussion about the topics.

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:

This looks like it could be a fun topic! I know I want to say bye when it's time to buy! My son has done a sermon about Jesus getting angry in the temple when the people were buying the sacrifices and it didn't take him long to say bye in that one and flip a few tables on the way out. I bet there's a lot of traditional Bible studies that fit these words. I haven't had too much time to think about it since I've been sick, but I'm excited to see what everyone has thought. :bow
