Draft Finished: "Cutting Cords and Clasping Hands"

Tonight I finished the rough draft of "Cutting Cords and Clasping Hands."  At about 14,500 words, this is a novelette (using Hugo/Nebula length ranges, there being no universal standard).  It is Fala's coming-of-age story, showing the shift from being kind of clingy as a child to being more independent as an adult.  This also includes some more development of Fala's age-mates.  I'll set this aside for a little while, then it will get revised and presented to the canon board for consideration on the Torn World site.  I'm pleased to complete the rough draft; this is a big piece and it's challenging for me to stick with things long enough to finish them.
