Well, we’re in the middle of the current Writing Challenge quarter, and the topics have been pretty fun – and always double! This quarter, every topic is TWO words that you need to write about (this is AND, not OR), and whether it be husband and wife, salt and pepper, or day and night, some wonderful pieces were created.
The newest topic, which opened yesterday, is CUP and SAUCER. Lots of ways to approach it. And there are still a handful of topics left after that until the challenge takes a break for a couple weeks.
Want to enter? Ponder the topic, and write a piece between 150 and 750 words about it and submit your entry no later than 10:59 AM ET on Thursday, September 4. Gold and Platinum members can enter each week, while silver members can try out the challenge a total of four times. You can also find a buddy group to look your entry over before you enter, and chat about the topic if you’d like on the FaithWriters forums. See more details on the rules/guidelines at the Challenge main page.
Once the topic closes, be sure to read and comment on others’ entries – there will certainly be gems for you. And watch the brick throwing thread on the boards for the all clear – this is a GREAT place to post the direct link to your entry once judging is completed (please do NOT share your entry publicly before you hear that judging is done to protect the integrity of the process). Then watch the FOLLOWING Thursday for the challenge winners.
Give the challenge a try – hope to see you there!
