Week 3 Challenge Topic - FORGET

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Oct 17, 2019 12:06 pm

Hi there, Challengeers. You may need to tie a string around your finger for this week’s Challenge. The Week 3 topic is:


Thank God our sins are lost in a sea of His forgetfulness, but for everything else, it can be quite frustrating to forget. How many of us walk into a room to get something only to forget what that was. Believe it or not, I’ve heard that this is a quite normal phenomenon. There is something about walking through a doorway that triggers an event boundary in the mind. That works for me. Much better than actually being super forgetful.

Basically, to forget is to cease or fail to remember or recall. You don’t really need the dictionary definition, but here it is:


We forget names (sometimes within seconds of hearing them), our keys, our sunglasses. We may forget to do a task, make a phone call, keep an appointment (but that’s what “to do” lists are for).

The one thing you mustn’t forget this week is to enter the Challenge.

Have fun with the topic—that’s the most important thing. 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:

Don’t forget to enter. Hope to see you in the list.
