Group 3: Humor, statistician, immortality

First time with comedy. I think I dreaded this genre almost as much as political satire. Almost. 

"Please Answer in the Form of a Question"

SYNOPSIS: Susan thinks she has the secret to eternal life. But will a week taking care of her sick brother’s baby teach her that quantity isn’t better than quality?

Group 2: Suspense / Bulletproof / a Rancher

I'm still not entirely sure if what I wrote was indeed of the Suspense genre, but we'll see.


The Weight of Whispers


Rumors follow Thomas after he inherits his late brother's ranch, casting a shadow he can't seem to shake.

Group 2:
Suspense, Rancher, Bulletproof

There Is No Planet B

 

North Dakotan rancher Bobby Joe Masterson is on vacation in London and can’t wait to get back home. An early morning stroll leads him to an Extinction Rebellion protest, which may just change everything.

Hope everyone's feeling refreshed after a stressful weekend!

I was in Group 4: Sci-fi – Immature – A reptile owner 
I'm not a massive reader of the genre, but let's see what happens!

Ornamental Humans

To combat overpopulation, a shadowy bioengineering corporation was tasked with manipulating the DNA of every second newborn to hinder their growth and stop them from reaching sexual maturity. But after the global elite exploited the selection process, these Forever Children became their slaves.



Had a bit of a stress halfway through Sunday when I suddenly started panicking that my definition of "reptile" might not be acceptable, but it's in the Collins English dictionary, so I'm just trying to put any worry out of my mind. Whatever will be, will be and all that.

Best of luck to everyone!

Hard to say whether I've written a ghost story with this one, among other challenges that it sounds like everyone confronted in our lovely 48 hour writing spell. Here's mine:

The Single-Stemmed Peony

 

Synopsis: A pregnant woman, running from an agreement she no longer wishes to fulfill, checks into a hotel, and is confronted with the choices she has made.



So many from Group 1 represented already!

This is great to see! Looking forward to reading all your stories!
