In short, the devices behind writing a virus are not all that complicated. There are many checks to counterattack, and part of the puzzle itself is no find new ways to get around them. Find back doors. Give the code a personality. Make it try to find the best way around a counterattack if it is able to detect one. Size is no longer a constraint in today's memory-hog world. A virus of near 50k would probably go undetected in modern-day storage, so don't feel constrained in that way. Time should be a consideration, however.
Make code that is efficient, so that users don't notice a slowdown when it is executed. All in all, your code is your work. Don't let it out of the bag until it works well and clean, and don't forget to leave no trace.
