Submitted: "Cutting Time"

Today Doug and I finished revisions on "Cutting Time" so that has been submitted to the canon board at Torn World.  At 9,100 words, this counts as a novella rather than a short story by Hugo/Nebula Award standards.  Personally, I tend to think of anything under 10,000 words as a short story.  I hadn't noticed this before, but apparently I'm writing longer stuff than other folks in the Torn World contributor crew.  So if you like long stories, keep an eye out for more.

Anyhow, this is Eshra's coming-of-age story about the challenges she faces due to a late-maturing body.  She has previously appeared in "Leaves in a Bitter Wind."  Another story featuring Eshra, "On the Rocks," is drafted and waiting for revision.
