(The title will be changing for anything else that this goes to later!)

Heat 20 - Romantic Comedy/Anxiety/A brewer

Sniff Master

 Determination is everything in dog sports. Dating isn’t on the score sheet.



Maybe they'll like it! I ended up calling a fiction war story the first semi-relevant noun I could see while needing to save the document, ended up keeping it, and it kind of works. 

Meanwhile I'm in love with my title for this one despite fearing no one but me and my coworker studying graduate philosophy for her PhD in International Relations will get it OR think it's funny.

Hi heatmates! I think at least the three of us, each went in VERY different directions with our prompts, which is awesome. :)

All is Bitter in Love and Beer

 

His business is tanking, his mix mojo is off, and he’s falling for his partner’s girlfriend – but Chris is about to discover a surprise or two brewing down at the Pirate Dog.

 

 

 

 


Jennifer.quail and BarbaraFL, another heatmate for us!! :)  (and if I misspelled anybody's username, please don't kill me, I had a veeery long day at work today)

I Just Wanna Dance All Night, 
Won't You Won't You

An aspiring DJ, Cliff, turns to music to express the love he’s grappled with since childhood.

But will she feel the same?

Hey heatmate! Love your take on the prompts and can’t wait to read!

Thanks! This was a fun one, though I don't usually write romance. Your take sounds great too. Also I just did a bit of creeping and read your R1 story, it was so good! Good luck in R2, though you probably won't need it Wink
R1: Ribbon Blue, 3rd
R2: I Just Wanna Dance All Night, Won't You Won't You, 1st
R3: The Hero of the Hill

Embarrassing but I accidentally re-posted my last post cause I thought it didn't work. Editing and replacing with this humble apology (also can't figure out how to delete, #technicalissues). Please ignore. Embarrassed

Heat 3
Fantasy/A Loan/An Introvert

Chaya
A woman has lived exactly the life she’s wanted for ten long and sweet years. But this life was never hers to keep, and the time has come for her to return to the life she left behind.

Can you tell I wrote this synopsis at 11:57pm(!!!)? The giveaway should be the use of the word "life" literally 4 times. I honestly had to cut out some of what I thought made Chaya's story special, and I didn't pace myself well, obviously haha. So while I'm not entirely pleased with what I submitted in the end, I'm really glad to have a piece I can improve upon outside of the contest.

Looking forward to reading and commenting on other stories! Especially my fellow Heat 3 members :)

Kurtis Fletcher allows an adolescent watershed moment to negatively define his future. Kurtis struggles for decades until one day his past and present collide at the bar on 5th and he has to decide whether to stay in the past or to give himself permission to embrace his own happy ending.



My family said there were a few snickery bits in the story, but overall no overt laughter. I'm not particularly happy with the synopsis but it's in now so no take-backs :)  My first draft somehow took on a life of its own and morphed into a weird instrumental soft-porn... needless to say, a lot of rewrites were required.  Looking forward to reading both your stories if you post. Hopefully, more niners post as well.

Hi heat mate! Instrumental soft porn sounds interesting... maybe post your first draft as well 😉

I’ll be posting - looking forward to seeing where everyone else went with their prompts. 

Now I have “this one time, at band camp” in my head 😂
