2nd Quarter Week 3 Topic - Rain

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Apr 18, 2019 12:53 pm

Hi there, Challengeers. We’re up to our last topic before we take our first one week break for the quarter, so make sure you don’t miss the Week 3 topic:


Whether we have too much or too little, it can always be sure that rain will be the subject of many a bit of small talk. Where I grew up in Southern California, rain was a rare thing - until it was a torrential downpour with flooding. In my new home state of Michigan, it is a regular thing (except when it’s snowing)

You don’t need a definition, but it may spark some ideas:


Rain isn’t always about water. Any small object that falls in large amounts can be said to rain down. We may even rain down praise or favors upon a person. In the same way, we could rain abuse on someone.

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 in mind the adjusted Challenge rule: 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:

Make it rain with creativity in the Challenge this week. Hope to see you in the list.

Love, Joanne
