“I want to make movies that pierce people’s hearts and touch them in some way, even if it’s just for the night while they’re in the cinema; in that moment, I want to bring actual tears to their eyes and goosebumps to their skin. – Russell Crowe
This week’s Wednesday Challenge on partner Susan and my site is GOOSEBUMPS.
Goosebumps are typically caused by the unexpected.
Lots of things can make your hair stand on end, from a cool breeze tickling your neck to a sense of impending danger. You might also experience goosebumps when you hear an inspirational speech or song.
The scientific term for hair standing on end is piloerection. It’s a reflex that causes tiny muscles near our hair follicles to contract and raise the hairs.
Goosebumps can be caused by a number of factors. The scent of a person’s perfume or cologne, being asked to make a speech in front of an audience, an unexpected noise or even being tickled can create the ideal situation to develop goose bumps.
This week we invite you to tell us what situations give you goose bumps.
As always, our challenge is flexible – please interpret in a way that suits you – using Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme.
