First time writing a short, I prayed not to get 'Horror' and well.... Ermm Clown Hopefully it's not too bad, can't wait to get some feedback from this community! :)

Group 12:  Horror - Pharmacy - Apple pie

Title:  No Escape from Sickness

Logline: 
While there is a shortage of drugs in the world, a woman and her sick daughter are held hostage in a waiting room with only a teddy bear and a mysterious apple pie at the back of a Parisian pharmacy, by a man who wants to save the world.

TOTAL PAIN

During a storm, two hospice nurses let an old woman stay in their facility overnight. When their patients disappear the next morning, they must figure out if their guest is the cause.

Wow - I cannot wait to read this.

Group 35 / Spy / A Lookout / Headphones

THE CIRCULAR TOWER
At the height of the Cold War both the U.S and Soviet secret
services wielded ‘psychic spies’ against the other, conducting
espionage and counter espionage by means of remote viewing.
Inigo Swann was America’s ultimate psychic weapon.

More Than Bargained For
A young man, pleased with a great deal on a special item, realises that he actually got much more than he bargained for.

So glad to see another Group 24-er!  This sounds very fun.  I love all the directions one can take with a ghost story!

I LOVE the new title! Can't wait to read what you submitted!

Hi Steph, you sound knowledgeable here 😁 I’m new to the challenge and so much life happened for me over the weekend unfortunately I just missed the upload deadline last night. Really bumming out!!  Lesson learned I’m guessing is just submit each draft as it’s written even if it’s just the Title and Logline, correct? At least you count in the system somehow. I saved a draft but didn’t “submit” .  Was hoping to get at least feedback on my work even though I missed time limit deadline and submitted late but submission form disappears at the time cut off!! No joking around there, lol!! 
How would you suggest to still get feedback,
helpful for a writer.
Also did I read correctly that we have 2 rounds guaranteed to participate in? So even though I missed deadline here I still get to play in round 2...

Thank you for your time in reading this, I appreciate any knowledge you are willing to share in enlightening me (and any other newer challenge members reading this😁) Wasn’t sure where to post… First time really using a forum! 😬
