As in Popular Culture

A little-known Sarajevan popstar can’t believe his luck when he’s booked as the support act for Fleetwood Mac’s European Dreams tour. His biggest fan Niko has never heard of them—but wouldn’t miss it for the world. 

(Historical fiction)

The Human, Outside His Natural Habitat

In a lonely valley in the Kashmir mountains, a photographer searches for an elusive and magnificent creature: the snow leopard.


I put "Drama/Adventure" as the genre, but it's not quite either of those things. Is there a genre for "I really like writing about nature"?

Hi all,

I have started plugging these into the final master list! It's looking juicy so far! Keep 'em coming. :)

Icarus Alone
An AI’s nightmare endangers its ship’s crew. Its mechanic tries to soothe its troubled sleep.

This one gave me trouble. Think I drafted 3 pieces before settling on this one.

Untethered

A woman can’t escape the stress and reality of her life, even in her dreams

Genre: Drama

Thank goodness we don't get judged on synopsis, mine are always so boring because I don't want to spoil anything. 

I had a million huge ideas and ended up really loving the scope I landed on. Also, I realized 15 minutes after the deadline that I submitted a version with and outdated line (a small line, but a VERY important line)!

I resubmitted and re-emailed, but I am sure they will judge on the submission that actually made the deadline. Really, it doesn't kill the story with the old version, but the newer version is much better. 

 I am so excited to read everyone's final stories!

Well, the one you landed on sounds super interesting! I can't wait to read it!

Aperture

A small town girl has big dreams.




I swear to God, this is not normally a theme of mine, but somehow I ended up here again. I had so much trouble with the location, I cannot tell you. Looking forward to reading everyone's!

This marked my 31st NYCM round (18th of FFC), and I think this might've been the hardest location I've ever dealt with (worse than a diving board and cable car, lol). I'm relieved I wasn't the only one to struggle with it. Good luck!

SandMann, Inc.


Genre: Sci-Fi?/Action?



Scott is the top dream programmer at SandMann, Inc., so he's not surprised when he's called to troubleshoot in the middle of the night. However, the problem is far bigger than he anticipated.


Think that's what I ended up with. I was too busy making plot-holes by filling in other plot-holes to come up with a good synopsis.
