How long is a novel?

Well, it's not 100% complete and final, since we're still working on the final chapter and Storm is doing line-editing right now, but it looks like Breeding Discontent is going to wind up being around 116,000 words! That's around 340 pages double-spaced in 12 pt. Times Roman. Definitely not a novella, he he.

I already decided months ago my next phase so far as writing is going to be short stories. Darn, but that will be quite refreshing. And much easier to edit. If you want to know what writing and editing a novel is like, try grabbing both ends of a mile-long snake and you'll see what I mean :>) I guess it could be worse though. It could be a thesis. Eeek!
