This challenge was created by Ray of Ray Not Bradbury and it’s a very unique premise!
I was nominated by A Guy Called Bloke and you can read his post by clicking on the hyperlink.
Here’s the ‘How To Take Part’:
Describe a very famous person (preferably historical, or well known – to everyone!). Include the details in your story so people can guess who is that STAR, but do not mention the real name.
You can add one photo-detail (non obligatory).
The style and the genre of the writing – any.
Ping back to this post: https://raynotbradbury.com/2018/06/25/writing-challenge-one-day-with-a-star/ so Ray can read and comment.
Spread the word around, up to 3 – 5 blogs. Have fun!
The followers should guess in the comments who is ‘your star’.
So who’s my mystery star?
I thought of several I’d love to have used, personal favourites like Edith Cavell, Florence Nightingale, Emily Pankhurst and Harriet Tubman but in the end I chose to stick to Hollywood to give everyone a sporting chance.
My mystery star was a famous Irish redhead who was probably best known for playing the feisty heroine in many westerns. Although it wasn’t quite a ‘western’ my favourite film of hers was set in the west of Ireland playing the heroine to the Duke. Many of my favourite childhood films starred her opposite the Duke. They were pure magic together.
She retired from show business in 1971 after starring with the Duke for the last time, but returned 20 years later to appear with John Candy.
She sadly died in 2015 – one of the last stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
