I am confused. Please help. Im writing in word and I have a word count at the bottom. Im not particularly far into the plot but I am at 33,000 words. I looked on Wikipedia and google for the word count of novels and was a little bit concerned that the average word count is 60,000 for a novel. What confused me more is (using a 12pt) am only at about 50 a4 pages. (dont worry i know that a novel isnt that size lol). Should i be halfway through by now? Basically what im asking is when you guys write on a A4(uk) or letter(us) how many pages do you kinda end up with. I know I should keep going without the restriction, but i do go off on a tangent, and want to know now if i need to edit, cut so i dont effect the continuity etc. as i can do that now easier than if i go further and bog myself down.
