I don't see a thread for this, so I'm starting one for the SSC round three-ers.

I'm in group 4 - comedy / a shopping spree / a teacher.

Which is weirdly close to my first ever NYCM prompt which was comedy / a midlife crisis / an art teacher...

Heat 1, suspense, an appointment, a cat owner.

I can work with this.

Romcom. Which I'm neither here nor there about, but was over the moon at 5am when I saw I hadn't got horror or pol-sat.

Heat 6--Sci-Fi, a promotion, a repairman. 

It's a bit eery, because I got Sci-Fi in the first round and wrote about a repairman and a promotion in the second round for a spy story. My previous stories are intersecting in the third round.

We're heatmates! I like the prompts. They're vague enough to take in a lot of directions, but unique enough to be inspiring. However, the weather is perfect, and I am finding myself extremely distracted by the beautiful outdoors! The story idea I settled on is dark, and the light, colorful springtime is not helping me get to a dark place. I've been calling the muses, but they too are out enjoying the sunshine. HELP.

Tell me about it! It should have been raining today, not tomorrow. I have a first sentence, anyway...

I think this will be my first real genre-blender since I never get the ones I really want, historical and spy, and suspense lends itself to those anyway. My cats are all smug, too.

I always hope for horror or thriller, and suspense lends itself well to those as well. Actually, now that you mention it... Aren't all good stories suspenseful? I'm moving along now that I've locked myself in my room and closed the blinds. Maybe I'll play some rain noises too, just to help set the mood. Best of luck!
