Synopsis: A well-timed dump saves a man’s life and preserves a spark in a cynic’s heart. Sort of.

Wait... like... an actual dump? Like.... a POO??!?


I got Sci-Fi / A convention center / a pumpkin pie. 

Whoops, forgot the title: The Gathering

Synopsis: A young girl learns to trust her instincts. 

(I always err on the side of brevity with my synopses.)

MegOverman, what an intriguing title!

Here's mine:

Group 2 - Drama/a dermatology office/a beer bottle

The Place She Called Home

In South Sudan, a tribal widow makes the long trek to a volunteer clinic in hopes of saving her only son.

Cutting this one down from 1906 was harder than most cuts I've made in the past. I miss the slower pacing and backstory of the longer version, but overall, I think I'm happy with this one, kind of, we'll see, oh dear. . .


The Way Home
Henry thinks taking home a branch from the locally cursed tree will prove himself to the other boys, but with help from his sister, Hazel, he discovers he’s got nothing left to prove.

Group 1: Ghost story, a forest, a saw

Waiting Shadows
Brief Synopsis: Emma stares outside at the raging blizzard and prays for her husband’s safe return from his hunting trip. Unfortunately, an unwanted guest shows up instead.

This one is...I don't know. I just wasn't in the mood to write a ghost story, lol. But I still had fun with it. So hopefully others will too. Tongue Great job surviving yet another insane round, everyone! Eager to see what you came up with!

A surfer’s perfect day becomes a nightmare



{Dear contesty peoples:  I loathe synopses, and think they take more away from the story than they add.  Please, no.}
It's FFC time!

Group 1: ghost story, forest, saw. :(

Title: The boy without eyes
Synopsis: Blinded, the second son of a great lord confronts his father’s ghost in a cursed forest. But will he be worthy to be the instrument of his father’s revenge.

I went a bit Brothers Grimm. It is probably more fairy tale than ghost story.
