  •  An additional point: it's not 50,000 words (5+ / 0-)

    It's a novel of at least 50,000 words.  Not memoir, nor essays, nor short stories nor journals, but a coherent plot with rising action, climax and denoument, protagonist(s), secondary characters and thematic coherence.

    True--just about anyone can blather on for 50,000 words, but writing a novel, controlling a narrative that large, that takes some doing.

    BDR, we can keep track of each other's progress.  I'll be there with a pitchfork whenever you need a prod from behind. :)
