40,011. I finally have a novel.
And page 158. Interesting stuff about Islam, oasis, Istanbul.
I'm thinking about starting a second blog, this one for a continuing story.... that might be fun, but I would have to archive that one, wouldn't I? Hmmm... I had decided that I archive far more than enough on the internet as it is, and that I wouldn't do this one or any other. But we'll see.
The story is going well, but the way. I'm happy with it tonight.
