Okay. Need some input here, guys. I've just copied and pasted my entire unfinished novel into Word (because NewNovelist is completely without a word count option, go figure) and I found out my novel has reached a total of 103,000 words. Now, I'm only on chapter 22 of an estimated 33, maybe more. This is my first novel and I've heard publishers tend to shy away if the word count breaks 110,000. Should I just go ahead and finish out what I have in my head, or just shorten what I have left since I'll probably have to do that anyway. It's definitely possible to shorten what I have left, but there'll be less of a closure to a few subplots I have rolling. This is really driving me crazy.
