Hi ho, Challengeers. Here we go again, and this time our topic is a phrase that's become fairly common in recent years. It is, usually, used to put down someone having a bit of a whine about some minor issue in their life. Not sure who first coined the phrase, but it is very much a part of the evolution of our language. The topic for Week 3 is:FIRST WORLD PROBLEMhttp://www.faithwriters.com/writing-challenge-intro.php
Clarify the topic here: http://bit.ly/NSU9em
Quite simply, it means the little annoyances we face as part of living in a first world country. For example:I hate having so many remote controls.
It's so annoying when people use the express line with 9 instead of 8 items.
I actually once spoke in church about this theme and used this video to introduce the topic. I think it’s the best illustration of “first world problems” online (and I just love Scooter Magruder):Top 100 First World Problems
Inspired? Great. Now it's time to go for it and get your creative on.
As always, you don’t need to use the phrase “first world problem” in your entry. However, you do need to show the meaning through your story/poem/article.
Most important thing, as always, is to have fun. Don't take the topics too seriously. Just let your creativity flow and enjoy yourself. Experiment. Try new things. Try old things. Let the crazy out.
Enjoy the creative process and feel free to chat about the topic here.
