Finished Draft of "Cutting Time"

I've finished the rough draft of "Cutting Time" (@ 8,650 words).  This is a Torn World story that started out as a handful of scene sketches last year when I was developing the character of Eshra.  People wanted to know her backstory, which is a pretty cool (if tragic) piece of sociologic mayhem.  I finally found time to flesh that out, since the character just got posted.  I'll let it sit for a bit and then polish it up for submission.

This meets my goal of finishing a story that was started and abandoned earlier.  Yay, yay!  I'm pleased with this because I have the Aries habit of starting far more things than I finish.
