I have finished the novella edits!!!
Wow. This was hard to write; mainly, I think, because it combined a length I wasn’t used at writing at, a culture I’m more than moderately familiar with (which means I put in tons of small details without bothering to pause for explanation), and loads of RL stuff happening during the writing.
Title is “On a Red Station, Drifting” (I wanted “dreaming”, as a reference to Dream of Red Mansions, but “drifting” is more appropriate for about all the main characters). Clocks in at 39,700 words, which I’m reliably told is 300 words under the point when it becomes a (short) novel. Just a last editing pass to do in order to get some of my em-dashes out, and it should be good to go.
Have some dancing dinos. I’ll be off for Japanese food with my sis.
