Week 9 Challenge Topic - PROMISE

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Sep 02, 2021 11:28 am

Here we are at the last topic of the quarter. Have you entered yet? If not, there’s still time with our final topic for the quarter. The Week 9 topic is:


There is little I hate more than having a promise broken - especially when I am the one who has to do the breaking! Not crazy about when someone breaks a promise to me either. Thankfully, God never breaks His promises - and He has made many to His people. Promise can be a noun or a verb - you make a promise, and you promise. Along with the standard meaning, it can also refer to someone or something that looks to be good in the future - your challenge entry idea can show promise, for instance. Others too - check out the definition for more thoughts!


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:


So, try to get an entry in before you take a nice break. We’ll be back in a few weeks - the first topic of next quarter will be announced on October 7. Hope to see you on the list!

Love, Joanne
