Adding to meet word count

Postby Tigerlilly79 » Thu Jun 14, 2012 9:04 am

I guess this is more of a statement than a question. I'm writing a YA novel and I feel that it's completed, however it only ended up being 65,000 words when the average is 80,000. Some of the publishers that I looked up publish books that are usually no less than 80,000. I went back through and added more details and descriptions bringing it to 68,000. I'm still a far way off. Now I'm going back to add chapters that I don't feel are needed or necessary, but I don't know what else to do. Has anyone else had this problem?

i don't know where you got the idea that it has to be close to 80k, when many YA novels are only 40k... is this for the upper age range of YA?... or the younger teens?
