Thank you everyone! Can't wait to see what s_c_baker added to The Lane wotf007

Oh, and I have a story prepped for an exchange at the "Story Critique Exchange" so if you're up for a novella that's (supposed to be) noir with magic in it, have a look

Congrats to you as well then!

Yeah, I have 40 of them I wrote ten years ago, just for fun. I ran across them a couple of months ago and chose the ten I thought best fit what Specklit was looking for.
I think I'll save the others for content on a future blog or something ...
