Ok. Here goes...

Group 8 - Drama / A botanical garden / A fish hook

Hooked

An old man looks for closure, but closure is never an easy catch.


I was dismayed at first at having pulled drama, and my synopsis doesn't tell much, really, but I'm actually very happy about how this one turned out. Here's to hoping the judges will agree with me!

Group 3: Mystery/ a stockroom/ A set of antlers. 
And, of course, I made it a storage room instead of a stock room because apparently reading comprehension is hard for me at 1 AM and why ever would I double check such minor details like the actual assignment? 
 

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Andi inherits a house from a stranger and finds answers in the storage room to questions she didn’t even know she had.

Group 40: Comedy, bartending school, sandpaper.

Bottoms Up 
Brief Synopsis: A millennial needs a job to handle life’s necessities, like yoga, Netflix, and Starbucks. He decides to try bartending (#thestruggleisreal). 


This is my 17th round of NYCM, but it's my first attempt at pure comedy. No idea if I nailed it, but I had SO much fun. Tongue Congrats to everyone who submitted a story!
