Amazing how finding a new job can change your outlook.
I'm feeling pretty good about "A Voice in the Darkness". I like where the story's going, so I'm feeling confident I'll be able to finish the story soon. I thought there might've been a problem with the story's timeline but a quick read through showed there wasn't.
So as of right now, "A Voice in the Darkness" is 8,324 words. Maybe I'll be able to bring this in under 10,000 words but I'm not promising anything.
