Wednesday Writing Challenge: Uncommon Loveliness

Welcome to the Wednesday Writing Challenge!

Every Wednesday, I pose a new writing challenge here on the blog. 

The Wednesday Challenges are open to all readers. In order to participate, simply comment on the challenge post with your response to the exercise. Not only is it good practice, but you could win something nifty and fun!


November Prize: Free E-Copy of Goblin Fires

Chronicles of the Four Courts, Book 1


 And now...

***Here's Today's Challenge!***

Describe an attractive person (male or female) who is attractive in an uncommon way.

It is up to you what "uncommon" means, but it should be in some manner NOT commonly idealized by mainstream romance or "beauty magazines". One type of attraction I would like to see more of, for example, is rubenesque. Tattoos, body mods, scars, etc.

If these types are already your personal cup of tea, try the reverse: describe an attractive person straight out of a mainstream fashion mag, but do it in your own way. Make it uncommon and unique. 

Post your results in the comments.




***Hints and Tips:***


The purpose of this challenge is to consider different angles of beauty and attractiveness, and break away from tired and overused stereotypes.


Consider not only what is different from the mainstream, but different to you, personally. Stretch your imagine and perception.
