I have to admit most of my writing comes up short of a novel word count. Most of it is in between 50k-60k but I've always thought that if you tell the story in 50k, tell the story in 50k. Trying too hard to lengthen a piece of work would just hurt it, right? I don't want my stories to ramble and just write pages to take up space so it can be a novel. But I can get some advice on how to add on to a word count or what have you've done to "beef up" you're word count when you needed it to be longer?
