At 10:38 a.m., November 15, 2004, Stella of Iselias officially died. At 10:41 a.m., three minutes and 145 words later, my story ended. It was 54,348 words long, and took 15 days to write, plus two and a half weeks to outline.
And it shall not rest in peace! :evil laugh: My inner editor is already breaking out the red pens; I went back to look at my word count, and she had me change "but" to "and".
