OK, we are past the deadline, so we can safely post titles and synopses. Do not post your actual story until you get the OK to do so from NYC Midnight; this will come via email, generally Tuesday or Wednesday of the following week. In this thread, you can post your prompts, title and logline.

The Formula for Finding Love Again Over Forty

Here’s an unwritten rule for widowed women back to the dating scene: if you meet a curly-haired chemist who says most of the right things and only judges your cereal killer tendencies a little, it’ll be worth it.
