I've always said, give me any story or plot and I could write it up in 15,000 words. Therefore, I've often wondered if others suffer with an inability to get real bulk down when writing. Take the whole 'first draft' thing. It's all well and good people telling you not to worry about it... just get it finished... get that first draft down, etc etc, but what if that first draft of your 100,000 novel comes in at 30,000 words? Is a first draft supposed to be of a similar length to your finished novel? Or is needing to find 50,000+ words for subsequent rewrites normal?
