>>>>*whispers* You reached the 50K mark ... according to NaNoWriMo, you're now a novelist.

liss: Really? Seems like an awfully short book to me. I'm thinking 70-80K would be a minimum length for a novel.



NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month, so though 50K seems short to you, it's probably a reasonable length for a novel written between November 1 and November 30.

not a novelist, but still working on her NaNoWriMo story
