Precocious is Finished!

And a good thing I chose to view Mslexia's guidelines on the website, else I would not have known they had moved their submission deadline.

I'm very pleased with the story. I think it highlights what a leap it was--is--to go from a naive, protected child to an adolescent trying out adult behaviour. It's always a shock, and who can say if there's any way to make it easier? In part I based the story on an episode that happened to me at sixteen. It would qualify as sexual abuse, but it was minor and the effect was confusing, because it had never occurred to me before that people could disguise nasty behaviour so that what was going on didn't appear to be going on.

I will not reproduce the ending here. Let's see how the editors like it, and in the meantime return to making a book. I have some new ideas percolating for "Vitae Lampada" to make the plot chewier, and besides, I'm sick of seeing these cherries!
