Week 5 Challenge Topic: HOPE

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Oct 29, 2020 11:26 am

Hey there, Challengeers. This is the last week before we take a weeklong breather - so don’t skip this time! Here’s the Week 5 topic:


In times like those we are going through, there isn’t much we need more than hope - whether it is the hope of a vaccine, jobs, an end to the madness, for elections results to go your way, or for this crazy year to be over (can I get an Amen?? ;) ). You can hope for anything - big, small, or anywhere in between. And hope can be unsure (I sure hope I get an A+ on that test I didn’t study for) , but, as we believers know, it doesn’t have to be. Of course, our greatest hope is in Heaven- and that is NOT wishful thinking. Check out the definition below for more ideas.


Have fun with the topic, and 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:

Do your best on this one! Hope to see you in the list.

Love, Joanne
