Week One Challenge Topic - HAIR

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Jul 04, 2019 12:50 pm


Hello, Challengeers. Welcome back after our break. Here we go with NINE creativity-inducing topics (and only one one-week challenge break - between topics 5 and 6), and here’s the first:


“Give me a head with hair … long, beautiful hair.” Or so the theme song of the tribal musical Hair goes.

Some of us have more than others. Black, brown, red, blond, grey, or going, going, gone.

Not all hair is on human heads or bodies, though. Some animals have hair, as do some plants, and let’s not forget hairy spiders (eek!). A hair can also be a non-exact measurement. A hair space is a very fine one.

We can split hairs, tear our hair, get in someone’s hair, and do a whole lot of other hairy things as well.


As always, 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 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 come on, Challengeers. Let your hair down and rise to the Challenge. Hope to see you in the list.

I also thought of that song, but the line about being hairy high and low. Very popular when I was a young teenager!
