Novella draft, finished. Clicked in at 40,638 words, which is a little long, but I’m sure there will be some cutting and adding still, so I’m not going to worry about getting it under the 40K mark yet. (This is mostly only an issue for Hugo voting, since there’s a firm cut-off between categories there.)
It’s done, it’s done. Feels v. good. Going to go eat lunch and then plant some perennials to celebrate.
