The Glitz and the Glory-April Challenge

OK, looking back at my last few entries I realize we've been dealing with some (potentially) dark topics in the contest of late. Time to lighten it up.

3000 words(roughly, I don't think the Word Police are watching) about something as far from Starfleet as you can get. That's right, we're going to delve into-*drumroll, queue spotlight*

POP CULTURE!

Write about pop culture in the Star Trek era(s)-about their version of Tom Hanks, Charles Barkley, Brittany Spears, etc ad nauseum.

I've always been curious about what kind of talent rises to the top of the Federation or other Alpha Quadrant societies. Who gets chased by 23rd century paparazzi? Who gets invited to Opening Night, 24th century style?

One interesting point to consider-with the advent of modern electronic records, what older entertainment/pop culture icons survive into the future?

Good luck, all, and remember all of us who entered last month-whether it fits this challenge or not, we all owe our readers a cliff-hanger resolution!

You know, at first I wasn't thinking I'd have any way to enter this...but a lightbulb finally went off in my head. The question's going to be the execution--we'll see!

Well doubt I can weave Charlie and the cliffhanger resolution into this, so I'll just have to do two seperate stories

Re: The Glitz and the Glory-April Challenge

So, did I pick something too difficult? I haven't seen even a comment other than Starkers, and zip for entries. What's up?

I think it's a terrific challenge idea and if I wasn't so swamped I would definitely give this a shot.

I'd love to find out what people come up with though.

Re: The Glitz and the Glory-April Challenge

I'm going to try and write something. I'm involved in a pretty fast-moving round robin over at Ad Astra, but I do think I have an idea in my head for this and I've already sketched out the bare bones for it. Hopefully I can get it in in time, but we'll see.

I have a Holodeck Hollywood idea brewing (Access Hollywood). Doubt I'll have it done in time though.

Well, "on time" in my world means 'within a few days' -so go for broke.

For some reason, I can't get the image Björk out of my mind.

I have an idea which will hopefully be short enough to get done quickly...once I get around to it!!!

I can't believe I actually have something for this contest. I just spent the better part of the night writing it. I'll have to polish it a bit but it's finished.

Re: The Glitz and the Glory-April Challenge

Well, I've definitely started. It's probably going to be way later in the month than I usually post, but I can tell I'm gonna make it.
