58607 words (including The End) and 27 days, and I didn't decide who would be the assassin until the last couple of pages. Who says authors know where things are leading? The only time I know where things are heading is when I'm working on a rewrite.
Anyway, woo-hoo, I managed to hit two goals: 50K and the end. Now I can rest and maybe watch the TV shows I've missed.
I am thrilled that I accomplished what I set out to do; but I am also sad that it is over for another year. I guess I'll have to start editing NaNo2006. That should help ease the withdrawal symptoms.
