Well, the goal is 120,000 words. That is how long I’d like Darash to be. That’s 484 pages. I’m 91,233 words into Darash. Roughly 11 chapters left to go. Don’t know if we’ll hit 120K, but we will be close. Originally I wanted ‘Baqash’ to be 75K words, it is 72K.

I’d rather tell a good story in the end than worry so much about the word count. And who wants filler words? I like my books gripping and fast paced, don’t you?

Oh, and the picture of the 747-400? Someone from ‘Baqash’ knows how to fly one. We find out who in Darash.
