Week 2 Challenge Topic - STRETCH

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Apr 08, 2021 11:10 am

Hi there, Challengeers. This topic could be...well… a reach. The week two topic is:


As I get older, I find that I have to stretch my legs and arms more than I used to - otherwise, I could trip or fall down (maybe it’s just me? LOL). Those muscles really need a workout if I want them to work properly. But other things can also stretch - your imagination can be stretched, along with taffy, Gumby, a rubber band, even the seventh inning. Stretch can be a noun or a verb. Check out the definition below for some unexpected approaches to the topic this week.


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 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:

It isn’t much of a stretch to hope for lots of entries this week, I don’t think. Hope to see you in the list!

Love, Joanne
