Week 6 Challenge Topic - BUSY

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Aug 15, 2019 12:57 pm

Welcome back from our break. I hope you were able to relax a bit, because the Week 6 topic is:


Heard this discussion before?

“Hey, how are you?”

Maybe that’s your response. It used to be mine, but I’ve made a point of not saying that these days. Being busy can be the sign of a full life, provided everything is in balance. It can also be a sign of overload—a common symptom of life in the 21st Century.

In the olden days (before voice mail), if we rang someone who was on the phone, we would get a busy signal.

Then there are busybodies (who need to know everything going on in everyone’s lives). A pattern may also be busy (too much going on).


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 maybe 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:

Come on, Challengeers. Get busy and get your entry in for the BUSY Challenge.
