2nd Quarter Week 5 Topic: DIARY

Post by itsjoanne » Thu May 16, 2019 11:49 am

Only this topic before we take a breather for a week, so make a note to enter. The Week 6 topic is:

DIARY
http://www.faithwriters.com/writing-challenge-intro.php

Did you ever keep a diary when you were a child or a teen? I tried. I always had the best of intentions, but never got very far.

Some diaries aren’t that type - people may record their work progress or anything else in a diary

That’s the thing about diaries. They may be personal and private, or they may simply be a tool to record daily information or appointments.

You don’t need the dictionary definition, but here you are anyway:

For some people, keeping a diary was their first step to becoming a writer.

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:

Remember, this is our last topic before a one-week break, so mark your diary and make sure you enter the Challenge this week. Hope to see you in the list.

Love,
Joanne
