It is finished. The first draft of the complete story is finished. The Spirit Thief has been written. What started out as a blurb to @kseniaanske has been birthed into a full-blown short story. Draft v1 is 7,676 words in length.
I am going to let it sit for a few days, then begin the first editing pass.
Thank you for urging me on to begin and finish it, y'all.
W00t! W00t! W00t! Congratulations!!!
