How long was your first [published] novel? If you haven't had a published novel, feel free to answer this question also. Should a first time novelist limit his/her novel in length? I am already at 106 pages, and I feel as though I will need at least 150 more pages to tell my story, possibly even more. But a lot has happened in the first 106 pages! Btw, I am still in the first draft still, if that means anything.
