I'm just finishing up the second draft of what I hope will be my debut traditionally published novel some day. I know that I shouldn't really be worrying about this so early in the process, but I can't help it. While I usually have a problem with writing too many words, I'm worried that this story has too few. I started off with 60,000, and now I've got 50,000. In some people's minds, that might not even count as a novel...

If I tried submitting it to agents in the future, do you think that would be a turn-off for them? Perhaps I'd be better off treating a different, longer project as being my potential first published book. Try as I might, I can't really bump the word count up on this one. My beta readers, when they get it, might prove me wrong and make lots of suggestions, but I can't think of anything that would add to the story as well as the words. I don't want to drag it out just for the sake of making a longer book.

I didn't find the right solution
